Innovation SuperNetwork Event 27 Feb 2024 at 9:30am
What is the programme?
We are launching a new programme set to enable hundreds more businesses in the Tees Valley to navigate the funding landscape and secure the finance they need to grow. Tees Valley Securing Investment has received £880,000 from the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund as part of the Tees Valley Combined Authority’s UKSPF Programme of support. The programme will address the long-standing barriers facing the region’s businesses in accessing money by connecting enterprises with investors and funds. Increasing the range of funding on offer to businesses through access to the Northern Investor Hub, businesses can also access bespoke one-to-one support, in-depth workshops and an online training programme – all designed to improve investment readiness. Open to businesses and socially trading enterprises operating across the Tees Valley Combined Authority area, the programme is led by innovation finance specialists and business support providers Innovation SuperNetwork, in partnership with Transmit Startups, CPI Enterprises & Edge Innovation.

We are inviting businesses, stakeholders, investors, corporates and policy makers along to the launch event on Thursday 15th February, 9:30am – 12:00noon at Middlesbrough Football Club, Riverside Stadium to find out more about the programme and get involved by making connections.
