Funding Opportunities for Business (Virtual Event)

Join us on Wednesday 11th November for our ‘Funding Opportunities for Business’ event as part of York Business Week. Simon Middleton, York and North Yorkshire LEP will share his insights into funding and will be interviewing his guests - Andy Herrington, Ainsty Ales and Andrea Morrison, Business Coach and Mentor, who will be talking about how funding helped their businesses. We'll also be welcoming Rukmal Abeysekera, The University of York who will be interviewing his guest Andy Nelmes from IBM to discuss how funding opportunities for innovation can be accessed through the Knowledge Transfer Partnership Scheme and Colin Poma-Young will interview his guest from York Probe Sources.

There are currently more than 21,000 people working in the professional services sector and one of the biggest short-term challenges facing businesses currently due to Covid-19 is cash flow. Of course there are different pressures in each sector but cash flow seems to be the common problem that businesses are facing up to right now. Clients are more often trying to delay or defer paying fees because of their own financial situation which is having a negative impact on business. In addition a reduction in funding will impact on securing new work so now more than ever funding opportunities are being sought to tide businesses over for the coming months and safeguard their business.

This event is part of York Business Week. For further information about other events taking place during the week, visit
