Big Investment Project (BIP) Launch

19th August 2014

Within the region there is a need for large, transformational, business-led projects in order to drive real change and attract funders from within London and International markets.

BIP will invite project ideas that will have, or potentially could have a significant impact on the economy of the region but need immediate or long term external investment support. The launch of BIP will promote the aims and objectives of the project: To identify and develop transformational, iconic projects across Sheffield City Region. The projects should be of national significance, ambitious and commercially sustainable that will, of themselves or by acting as catalysts, generate significant new opportunities for businesses and people in the region. The Group will facilitate funding by arranging significant national and international funders to visit the Region, to work with us and assess projects. Event format: Drinks reception, canapés, presentations by key individuals involved with the project. As partner sponsors to the MADE festival, Sheffield Chamber are delighted to host a fringe event that will really be of benefit to the economy of the region, strongly complementing the ethos and key themes of MADE Festival i.e. inspiring, supporting and fostering the growth and success of entrepreneurs and business owners.
