The North East Fund Limited, the company managing delivery of the £120m North East Fund in conjunction with four regional fund managers, is getting behind The Great Exhibition of the North 2018 by supporting local SMEs attending the Northern Powerhouse Business Summit.
Business owners visiting the expo are being invited to make one-to-one appointments with fund managers to discuss their funding requirements during the two-day event.
More than £120m of investment is accessible over the next five years through five different funds; The Venture Fund, The Development Capital Fund, The Growth Capital Fund, The Small Loans Fund and The Innovation Fund, with over 600 businesses across the North East expected to benefit from the programme.
Appointments are available on Wednesday 4 July with Northstar Ventures (9am-11am) for The Innovation Fund, Maven Capital Partners (11am-1pm) for The Development Capital Fund, and NEL (1pm-3pm) for both The Small Loans and Growth Capital Funds.
Andrew Mitchell, CEO of The North East Fund Limited commented, “The Business Summit provides the region’s SMEs with networking and growth opportunities as well as a platform to showcase innovative start-ups and trailblazing scale-ups. It’s the ideal event for those seeking funding and investment to grow their business, to meet with fund managers and receive the expert advice they require.”
The Northern Powerhouse Business Summit is taking place from Wednesday 4th – Friday 6th July 2018 at the Boiler Shop, Newcastle upon Tyne, and is the central business event during the Exhibition.
