Solent LEP 'pit-stop' offers support to Isle of Wight businesses

Steve Butler, of the Isle of Wight TUC, which wants businesses to take advantage of a support event organised by the Solent LEP.

THE Isle of Wight TUC is encouraging Island businesses to take advantage of the third business support pit-stop taking place in Cowes this month.

On January 16, from 10.30am to 2pm, a number of business support organisations will come together at UKSA to give businesses old and new a chance to get help on a wide range of issues in one place.

The event follows two successful business support mornings in Portsmouth and Southampton.

Those attending will get the chance to discuss everything from assistance with exporting, applying for business loans and grants to staff training and more.

The event, organised by the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), will also feature networking opportunities and presentations from the Solent LEP and the Solent Growth Hub on the funding support on offer.

Steve Butler, from the Isle of Wight TUC, said: “I would urge local industry and businesses to take up this opportunity.”

The Solent LEP team will also be available for pre-booked one-to-one meetings after the presentations for individuals who have submitted an expression of interest form for any LEP funding programme.

To book a place, e-mail events@solentlep.org.uk with your name, title and organisation. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, with a maximum of two places per organisation.
