The Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SWLEP) is organising an event showcasing private and public business support, at Wellington Barn in Calne, on Thursday, 23rd March, 2017. Making Business Greater is an event, targeted at small, medium and micro businesses seeking access to expertise in business acceleration and growth. Those looking to start-up or gain inspiration for an existing business are also encouraged to attend to be able to access experienced business advisors, problem solvers and funding experts who will also be present.
The event aims to provide support on some of the growth challenges faced by most SMEs- making a business export ready, innovating, developing workforce skills, making valuable partnerships and accessing grants to fund future business plans.
The event provides an opportunity for businesses to network and learn from peer experiences. The key note address will be delivered by Mark Miles, Managing Director of Render Media, a Swindon based company, whose virtual reality and computer graphics have outgrown local boundaries creating an international appeal. Mark will touch upon his personal experiences in growing Render Media with a small team and the intervention points at which he accessed business support to help his venture.
As well as an avenue for business support advice, the event will also introduce delegates to funding streams and grants available.
It is expected that close to 150 local businesses will attend the event. If you would like to attend the event, please register your interest here.
