Grants and Funding for Dorset Start-ups – Dorset Growth Hub
21st December 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm GMTFree
About this event
This workshop will run both online and in-person in Canford School where we will cover funding options for start-up and early-stage businesses plus a look at more general funding options.
Lucy Kitcher from NatWest will talk about how you can give yourself the best chance of attracting funding from a bank and we will explore other early-stage funding options such as the government start-up loans.
We will also spend some time looking at the New Business grant offered by the Dorset Growth Hub and run through how to best complete the application form.
Who should attend
Dorset start-ups that want to explore our grants and funding for their new businesses only succeed when a robust business plan is in place.
Businesses that have a clear strategy and direction for the business succeed and grow more effectively.
This programme is a perfect opportunity to take time out of your business to understand more about what is out in the financial marketplace currently.
