The New Anglia Growth Hub is staging the half-day “Beef up your Business” session together with Lloyds Bank, Suffolk Chamber of Commerce and Suffolk Coastal District Council.

It is aimed at local companies with a desire to grow and those with plans to re-invest in their business. Delegates will learn about micro grants up to £10,000, grants for capital investment up to £500,000 and other funding streams for new exporters, manufacturers and companies seeking to reduce their energy bills.

Alan Cowie from the New Anglia Growth Hub said: “Finding the right information online from hundreds of sources can be tricky and time consuming if you’re running a business. This event will give people more clarity when it comes to grants and business support.”

Speakers at the event will include company directors David Kitt and Chris Melsa who will tell how a £10,000 grant helped the growth of their business, KitCrew Camps, which offers activities for children during the school holidays.

Mr Kitt said: The funding we received allowed our business to grow four-fold and much quicker than I could otherwise have afforded. The team are there to offer you support, but ultimately you’ve got to put the work in to get the grant. My advice is simple – it’s worth it.”

The event takes place on Wednesday, April 26 from 2.30pm to 5pm. To book a free place at the event, visit
