Connecting with cash

Have your say

Companies from the Sheffield region that need funding to back growth plans are being offered assistance by Connect Yorkshire.

The organisation has helped more than 300 high growth Yorkshire companies raise £45 million over the last decade. Now it is teaming up with top professional services firms to run free workshops, starting this month, to help companies become “investor ready.”

Connect Yorkshire chief executive, Nick Butler, said: “Over the last ten years we’ve seen companies become market leaders and fledging ideas turn into global brands.

“Often these entrepreneurs and fast growing businesses may excel in their sector but need assistance in being ready and able to attract multi-million pound investors.

“These workshops help businesspeople develop skills to enable them to take their companies to the next stage of growth.”
