Demystifying the funding landscape for underrepresented founders in West of England

Demystifying the funding landscape for underrepresented founders in West of England

Event 1

Alongside the Business and Intellectual Property Centre (BIPC), West of England Growth Hub and various local authorities, NatWest is pleased to present this event on demystifying the funding landscape for entrepreneurs across the region who are from underrepresented backgrounds on Tuesday 25th June at 9:45am online.

Through research and collecting feedback, we know that access to funding for businesses going from start-up to scale up can sometimes be a challenge, and we also know that finding information about available funding can be just as difficult. We have developed this event series to level the playing field for our entrepreneurial communities seeking funding, so if you're thinking about growing your business in the near future, or just want to know more about the funding landscape in general, this is the event for you.

In this event, we'll talk about support available for businesses through region specific funding schemes as well as more general principles related to funding for your business where attendees will also have the opportunity to ask the presenters questions.

This event is for you if you're an entrepreneur from an underrepresented background and if you live in areas covered by Bath & North East Somerset Local Authority, North Somerset Local Authority, Bristol Local Authority or South Gloucestershire Local Authority. Sign up here.
