Did you know you can get advice and one-to-one support on raising finance from experienced and successful entrepreneurs, investors and sector specialists – FREE OF CHARGE?

If you are looking for funding of more than £10,000 to start or grow your business, there is a team of mentors offering their time and advice free of charge via ‘Understanding Finance for Business’, a programme funded by EEDA. So far, via a combination of workshops, mentoring and pitch coaching, the team has helped businesses in the East of England raise over £1m in bank, grant and equity finance - at no cost to the companies concerned.

To find out how you can benefit and sign up for the next workshop in Hemel Hempstead on 3rd March 2011 (at the Ramada Jarvis) go to http://www.stjohns.co.uk/finance.

Workshops are scheduled up to the end of June 2011.  Whilst it is hoped that the programme will continue after that, there is no guarantee, so it is vital that companies sign up now to ensure they benefit. For a list of upcoming dates visit http://www.stjohns.co.uk/finance/workshop-format-and-dates.
