Growth fund opens to bids on October 11
BUSINESSES in the region can get advice on how to secure a slice of the Government's flagship enterprise scheme at an upcoming event.
Round 5 of the Regional Growth Fund (RGF) will open on Friday October 11 with a briefing at the Royal Station Hotel in Newcastle.
The event, part of a national roadshow, will feature a presentation on how to make a successful bid and offer attendees the opportunity to ask questions.
Attendees will also have the chance to discuss their bid as part of an expression of interest meeting with a bid appraisal specialist from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). This will allow potential bidders to receive advice on their application and get further information about the RGF.
A dedicated day for expression of interest meetings will take place at Moongate House, 5th Avenue Business Park, Team Valley, Gateshead on October 18. Telephone sessions can also be arranged.
Bids to the latest round of the RGF, which aims to create jobs in areas hardest hit by Government cuts, will close on December 9.
To reserve a place at the event and to secure an expression of interest session with one of the bid appraisal specialists from BIS email firstname.lastname@example.org
