Business Shaper Group and New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership will be holding Business Roadshows across Norfolk and Suffolk to help hundreds of companies access grants and funding to help them grow.

These region-wide events will help to highlight the wealth of grants, funding opportunities, free business support and training available to business owners as they prepare their organisations for the future.

The first locations include Fakenham on Thursday, April 24, at 4pm and Downham on Wednesday, April 30, at 4pm.

The roadshows, which are sponsored by Business Shaper Group, Swinton Accountants and Ultimate Finance Group, aims to help over 1,000 businesses across the two counties.

Gary Douglas-Beet, managing director of the Business Shaper Group, said: “With the up turn in the economy, there has never been a better time to invest in growing your business. We would simply urge businesses of all sizes and industries, new and established, not to miss out on this fantastic opportunity. Whether, they are looking to improve your business, to develop an innovative product or just understand the various options, taking two hours out could provide them with the information needed to help make their company more innovative and competitive in the future.”

Jason Middleton, funding and pProjects manager at New Anglia LEP said: “There’s a huge amount of free advice and support available to businesses but it is often hard to find. By working with Business Shaper Group on this initiative, further enables us to help local businesses by tapping into our combined expertise and resources, business owners can ensure that they are in the best possible position to grasp the opportunities as the country comes out of the recession.”
