A business support roadshow to help new and existing companies is being held on Thursday, January 31, at the East Northamptonshire Council offices in Thrapston.

Hosted by East Northamptonshire Council, in association with the Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership (NEP), the free drop-in event is aimed at people who are thinking of starting a business or growing an existing business.

The event will highlight the range of business support available from NEP including workshops, networking opportunities, start-up grants to get your business off the ground, property searching, recruitment support and funding programmes to help your business grow.

Officers from the council will also be on hand to answer any business-related queries.

No appointment is necessary, just drop in any time between 8.30am and 11.30am.

“The organisation offers a straightforward and comprehensive programme of business support, created specifically to provide all the fundamentals for a successful new business.”

Cllr Steven North, leader of East Northamptonshire Council, said: “We’re pleased to host this event in order to outline the variety of support available to entrepreneurs and business owners across the district.
