Cllr Liz Redfern, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said:

 “There are so many great opportunities for businesses, whether you are looking at starting up a new business or wanting to develop and expand your business. This event will certainly highlight the great deal of support that is available and give people the opportunity to speak face-to-face with other successful businesses to capitalise and gain valuable help and expert advice from organisations.

 “The £10m Regional Growth Fund has already benefited several businesses in North Lincolnshire allowing them to boost and develop. Please don’t miss out on this great opportunity to hear some invaluable advice from David Fishwick and a range of successful businesses.”

This event will be an excellent opportunity to hear how local businesses have received support to help them grow and find out about what is on offer.
