New Anglia Growth Hub is to host a funding workshop, bringing together five providers of business support under one roof.

The event, to be held at the Riverside House Hotel in Mildenhall on Friday, October 2, will feature representatives from Lloyds Bank, Foundation East, Fleximize, CrowdFundMe2 and New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

It forms part of the Bury St Edmunds and West Suffolk Business Festival, which runs from September 30 until October 9, and aims to give business owners a clear insight into the shape of the current funding landscape.

Lloyds Bank will offer guidance on commercial loans and what is expected of businesses when applying, and New Anglia LEP will provide information on the grants of up to £500,000 available through the Growing Business Fund.

Foundation East is a broker of the start-up loan scheme and an alternative finance provider, Fleximize, is a provider of short term bridging finance, and CrowdFundMe2 is a crowdfunding specialist and business consultant.

The workshop, which is free and open to company owners in Norfolk and Suffolk, will run from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. To book a place, call 0300 333 6536 or email .

New Anglia Growth Hub has supported more than 3,500 businesses and individuals since June 2014, giving businesses across Norfolk and Suffolk access to free face-to-face business support from 10 mobile business growth advisers. It is delivered, on behalf of New Anglia LEP, by Suffolk Chamber of Commerce.
