Andrew Leeming 1

A breakfast event later this month (18th April) will give Lancashire business advisors the opportunity to find out more about what government support is available to help their clients grow, protect their innovations and trade internationally.

Hosted by Boost; Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub, the event at the Best Western Samlesbury Hotel is part of the #GrowingLancashire campaign which aims to advise and assist more than 4,000 businesses in the county by the end of 2018. Speakers from the Intellectual Property Office will highlight how intellectual property (IP) impacts on every business and the free tools available to help understand the subject.

The Department for International Trade and the local Chambers of Commerce will also be on hand to offer an insight into the opportunities available to help Lancashire businesses trade overseas. Boost advisors will be in attendance to introduce their fully funded support programmes including: start-up support, mentoring, new product development and help accessing finance.

Andrew Leeming, Boost programme manager, said: “The aim of the event is to update the county’s bankers, accountants, lawyers and business advisors on the wealth of national and local support available from government to help businesses grow.” This event is organised in partnership between the Intellectual Property Office (IPO), the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) Lancashire & South Lakeland, Boost (Lancashire's Business Growth Hub), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Department for International Trade (DIT).

The event is being held at the Best Western Samlesbury Hotel from 7.30am-9.30am on 18th April 2018. To find out more and to book your free place visit http://bit.ly/2IaoDER or call Boost on 0800 488 0057.
