Grant Funding – How to apply & what you can access

Join AD:VENTURE and our partners to explore how you can practically use grants and access local funding to grow a start-up or young business. Leave feeling confident in exploring this for your own growth plans.

It’s easier than you might think……

At this informal and relaxed event, you’ll hear how businesses across the region have used local business support and grant funding to accelerate their expansion plans.

We’ll look at what you can actually spend the cash on, debunk a few myths about the perceived terrors of public funding (we know it can seem scary….it’s really not) and lead you through the huge range of support and advice you can use to maximise the potential of your scale up activities.

AD:VENTURE was developed to help ambitious businesses grow faster and smarter, adding economic and social value to our region. We can support B2B enterprises who are just starting out or growing a young business under three years old. There are lots of programmes of support for SMEs who have big ambitions and we want to share what we can offer.

We would also welcome those who work with young or growth focussed businesses and want to know a bit more about what we do. Our partners at the Leeds City Region Enterprise partnership will be on hand to share details of the regional growth support available across a range of sectors, which can be accessed by business older than three years.

AD:VENTURE is supported by the 2014 – 2020 European Regional Development Fund, and partners
