The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund in partnership with TheBusinessDesk, is launching a series of breakfast seminars across the North of England.
The aim of the events is to educate entrepreneurs about the funding options available to them.
The first in the three-part series of events will take place in Lancashire, at the home of one of the region’s most famous football clubs Blackburn Rovers.
Further events will be held in Chester and in Hull.
Delegates will hear from like-minded business owners who have grown following NPIF investment along with experts who will demystify the complexities surrounding corporate finance and offer sound guidance.
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.
