The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF), in partnership with TheBusinessDesk, is holding a series of three breakfast seminars across the North of England in Spring 2020 to educate entrepreneurs about the funding options available to them.
The Yorkshire event took place in Hull, at the Ferens Art Gallery on February 11th and FEO was delighted to be invited onto the panel to discuss a range of topics including:
What are the main challenges in the area?
What makes the Humber a great place to do business?
What challenges do you face attracting skills and talent to the area?
Delegates also heard from like-minded business owners who have grown following NPIF investment
The £400m Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund was established in 2017 with the ambition to transform the funding landscape across the North of England and create economic prosperity on par with London and the South East.
To date, NPIF has directly invested more than £135m, in deals that have attracted an additional £123m of investment from the private sector.
This investment is helping business owners that had previously been under-served by traditional lenders to expand, enter new markets and create thousands of new jobs.
