The Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Start-up Team in conjunction with Venture House and the CWLEP Growth Hub would like to invite you to attend a finance focused event for new start businesses!
Running your own business can be isolating, and in the early stages, it may be tricky to know where to go to access support, advice and information and this can slow your business growth.
We want to bring together start-up businesses (registered and trading for up to 12 months) and budding entrepreneurs from across the region, to help make valuable connections and introductions in a relaxed atmosphere over a light lunch. There will also be a series of short talks by local experts, who will share their top-tips around raising finance and understanding accounts and cash flow. All things to watch out for when you're starting out and hopefully you will gather some tools and tricks that could help you in your business journey!
You will also have the opportunity to put your questions to the experts at the end of their presentations or over lunch.
The session is targeted towards those clients in their first 12 months of trading.
