Finance and funding
Business relocation means big decisions, but they’re easier with the right support and advice. Nottingham has exactly the expert help you need – from business mentoring and the sharing of knowledge to finance advice and funding opportunities.
A key barrier to growth is access to sources of finance. Here in Nottingham, business support programmes, grant schemes, equity and loan funds can be identified with help from the East Midlands Development Agency (emda). Both emda and the regional Innovation Network (iNet) teams aim to support and nurture business innovation to boost regional productivity and competitiveness. That’s good for you, and it’s good for Nottingham.
Nottingham City Council’s Invest in Nottingham team offers a seamless service to smooth the way for companies moving into the area. Their skills and knowledge range from help with site selection and arranging visits, to finding the right staff and relocation support for your employees. They’ll introduce you to strategic business partnerships and networks, and follow through with ongoing business support.
Businesses are also offered invaluable advice by university experts in services, engineering and manufacturing at regular Knowledge Transfer breakfast events.
There are plenty of business mentoring and networking opportunities. New and emerging businesses will benefit from the popular OnCourse Innovation Leadership programme – a series of Masterclass events led by the region’s successful business leaders and innovators.
