Rebuilding the regions: How businesses can help build back better

2020 was a year of survival for many businesses. Now as we have a roadmap for unlocking lockdown, businesses can begin to look to the future.

As the country prepares to “build back better”, in partnership with the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund will host a free webinar tomorrow focused on how businesses are gearing for growth.

The session will see Adam Ward, CEO and founder of Airtime Rewards and Carl Criscione, managing director of Equinox Group, share the story of their transformational 12 months and how they’ve laid the foundations for the future and their growth strategies.

The session will also discuss the support available to businesses including finance options and provide practical tips on how business leaders can stay ahead of the game.

Other panellists include: Lou Cordwell, chair of Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership; Ken Cooper, managing director of Venture Solutions, British Business Bank; and Sarah Hex, business development manager at Mercia, one of the NPIF fund managers.

The event is free to attend and will take place via Zoom at 10am on 25 February, simply register now.
The £500m Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund was established in 2017 with the ambition to transform the funding landscape across the North of England and help to create economic prosperity on par with London and the South East.

To date, NPIF has directly invested more than £227m, in deals that have attracted an additional £253m of investment from the private sector.

This is helping business owners that had previously been under-served by traditional lenders to expand, enter new markets and create thousands of new jobs.

The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund is one of the partners for the upcoming virtual conference Invest North which will bring together business and policy leaders to set the agenda for what’s to come next for the North. Early bird tickets for the event are now live, click here to order.
