A fully funded online workshop and support session for businesses in the Tees Valley as part of the Grow Tees Valley project.
A fully funded online workshop and support session for businesses in the Tees Valley as part of the Grow Tees Valley project, this workshop will help you understand how graduates can help with your business ambitions and the support available. This can include grants towards salary costs if you end up employing a new graduate.
The workshop is designed to be of value to businesses from all sectors.
Prior to the workshop one of our business coaches will contact you for a free online business diagnostic meeting to understand the needs of your business and how the Growth Tees Valley programme can support your growth.
The workshop itself will focus on how graduates can help to develop and embed new ideas in your business, as well as some of the support available. Alongside experts from Teesside University, Billingham-based software business Nicander will share their experiences of using the support available to employ a graduate to work on a highly technical construction project, developing the software to manage one of the world’s longest road tunnels (21km of tunnels as part of the Stockholm bypass in Sweden).
Following the workshop, businesses will be able to apply for funding and support to implement their growth plans. Terms and eligibility criteria apply.
This session is designed for small and medium-sized organisations in Tees Valley and eligibility criteria apply.
