Shropshire Libraries are hosting Let’s Do Business! sessions in partnership with the Marches Growth Hub Shropshire and University Centre Shrewsbury.

The Marches Growth Hub Shropshire says it is delighted by the success of its ‘Let’s Do Business In’ roadshow since it was launched earlier this year in Market Drayton Library, with later sessions in Wem and Ludlow Library.

Under the scheme, an expert team from the growth hub and partner organisations visits a town to offer advice and support to businesses and entrepreneurs looking to establish a new venture or grow an existing company.

Anna Sadler, Business Growth Hub Officer, said:

“The roadshow gives us the perfect opportunity to talk to businesses face-to-face about what sort of help and financial support is available to them and how easy it can be for them to access.”

Ellesmere Library – 5  December 2019, 10am to 1pm – free drop in session

Nikki Ayton and Sarah Bennett, Business Development Managers, Digital Solutions project, University Centre Shrewsbury said:

“We can support businesses to innovate using digital technology within their business processes or to develop new products and services.  Although we can offer support to every sector, there is a particular emphasis on digital health.

Libraries are a great venue to meet local businesses looking for funded support (which is free to the business) and we are very excited about the opportunity of working more closely with them to provide access to our ERDF funded Digital Solutions project.

“Eligible businesses based in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin can benefit from these collaborations.  We’re looking forward to the next one.”
