Conferences to aid fund raising

Have your say

Businesses seeking funding for growth are being invited to a series of finance conferences across Yorkshire, organised by Finance Yorkshire and attended by representatives from each of the Local Enterprise Partnerships around the region.

Finance Yorkshire’s Sheffield City Region finance conference will take place at Sheffield Town Hall on Thursday, March 28.

Finance Yorkshire is supported financially by the European Union. It has a £90 million fund which provides seedcorn, loan and equity linked investments, ranging from £15,000 to £2 million.

n WITH the decline of public services AND charitable giving, social enterprises are increasingly being relied on to fill the gap.

And there seems to be no shortage of entrepreneurs who are up for making a profit but with a clear social goal.

On Wednesday, Business Monthly reports on an event designed to accelerate the businesses working for others’ benefit.
