Event Details

A series of free ‘Business Breakfast 2015’ events will be held by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership across its area; to update companies and stakeholders on progress and future activities.

The Local Enterprise Partnership of business, local authorities, skills and training providers, and community organisations promotes economic growth and jobs creation across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Each year – in addition to its Annual Conference and AGM (held in July), and attendance at business events throughout its area – it holds a series of free Business Breakfast events.

These are used to update companies, skills and training providers, community organisations and others on its activities and projects, including on:

  • Growth Hub – Its free advice for new and recently established businesses, which has dealt with over 500 enquiries, since it was established at the beginning of this year (2015).
  • Skills – Launching special projects such as its Provider Charter, to actively create closer links between employers, and skills and training providers.
  • European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) – The £214million D2N2 will be spending in its area over six years to finance projects addressing business, education, employment, low carbon technology, social exclusion, business entrepreneurship and competitiveness, and many other issues.
  • Business financing – Grants and loans to help businesses take forward their own expansion plans or to kick-start stalled development projects, which will create jobs.
  • Capital Investment – To help build infrastructure and create jobs. For example, the recent £6.5million D2N2 investment in Nottingham’s £30m extension to its BioCity life sciences site.

The six Business Breakfast morning events – which will each begin at 7.30am and end at around 9.30am – will run from mid-October to the end of November.

They will each feature an update from D2N2 LEP Chief Executive, David Ralph on the organisation’s progress and future objectives; a presentation on a current project; and include a guest business speaker.

There will also be a chance to view D2N2’s recent Annual Conference video, get a copy of its 2014/15 Annual Review (published in July) and to network.

The free Business Breakfast events will be held on:

  • Thursday October 15 – At Nottingham’s New Art Exchange, 39 - 41 Gregory Blvd, (NG7 6BE).
  • Wednesday October 21 – University of Derby Enterprise Centre, Enterprise Centre, Bridge Street, Derby, (DE1 3LD).
