In a post Covid world and an increasingly tough trading environment it is essential that businesses look to accelerate growth to overcome these hurdles. However, many businesses have depleted financial resources after Covid and so struggle to invest for growth or, are nervous about burning cash that they may need for operations in an uncertain future. It’s essential then that businesses understand all the possibilities that exist to access funding for growth, and there are many. Funding means businesses don’t have to fund growth out of cash flow, but navigating the funding landscape can be complicated, there are many schemes, so a shared experience between businesses can really help to unravel it.

What is required then is clear understanding of what is available, what is needed to access it and a collaborative environment where businesses can work together to maximise funding for growth of themselves and the business environment in Basingstoke. Fortunately, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council is funding a programme to do just that. A development workshop for Unlocking Funding will be hosted at Centre Dr, Chineham on the 5th of October from 8am to 10.30am. Details of the workshop and where to get FREE tickets are listed below so don’t miss this great opportunity:
