Funding for Growth with the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund

The business community in Sheffield has reacted positively to the £400m Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund with the region’s corporate finance advisors, the Growth Hub, banks, and accountants all referring clients to the funds. This is already making a real difference to small and medium businesses looking for funding options for the next step on their growth journey.

Come and hear from a panel of finance experts and entrepreneurs discussing NPIF funding options and the opportunities and obstacles around raising SME finance in today’s marketplace.

The £400m Fund, which is supported by the European Regional Development Fund, HM Government and the European Investment Bank, was launched by the British Business Bank as a key part of the government’s ‘Northern Powerhouse’ vision to back innovative, fast growing small businesses.
