The journey to business growth can be challenging for small and medium businesses (SMEs). The path to expansion is often filled with obstacles, ranging from limited resources and financial constraints to market competition and operational complexities. Recognising these hurdles, large corporate companies have taken notice and are stepping forward to offer their support and expertise to SMEs.
De Montfort University and Leicestershire Business Voice (LBV) are coming together to facilitate an event where influential corporate companies will share their perspectives on their commitment to supporting SMEs and actively contributing to their growth.
During the event, SMEs will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the available assistance and the motivations driving these companies to invest in their success. Notably, SMEs will be actively encouraged to participate in the panel discussion and collaborate with the corporate entities.
This event’s timing is paticularly relevant, with publicly funded business support at a point of significant change .Delegates will also gain insights into strategic collaborations, mentorship programmes, funding initiatives and innovative resources that are aiding the growth prospects of small businesses.
