Technology businesses are being encouraged to sign up for a free support programme
This article is relevant to businesses across the Leeds City Region.
Ambitious technology orientated businesses in Bradford are being encouraged to sign up for a free support programme to help them grow.
Northern Max Accelerator, launching in early February, will be delivered through a mixture of face to face and online sessions and is for businesses that are pre-start or less than three years old with growth ambitions.
It’s the fifth time the programme has run in the city, with dozens of jobs created at firms that have attended before and thousands of pounds given out in grants and loans.
The Northern Max Accelerator runs for ten weeks and includes a range of practical support, such as specialist workshops and expert mentoring. It also provides opportunities to access funding and the chance to pitch for potential investment at the end.
The weekly online workshops cover topics including developing your business model; route to market and marketing; partnerships and collaborations; business finance and the business plan.
Northern Max Accelerator will be delivered by Greenborough Business Management’s 10x10 accelerator programme in partnership with Bradford Council and AD:VENTURE, a business support programme for new businesses in North and West Yorkshire, which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Although based in Bradford, it is open to eligible businesses across the Leeds City Region.
Cllr Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council’s portfolio holder for regeneration, planning and transport, said: “Northern Max has helped dozens of entrepreneurs already and we want to help dozens more. These are tough times for business, but we know giving support early on can help businesses survive and thrive.
“And it is so important that we support the business community, to help our economy, both in the city and the region.”
