The GrowBiz XChange returns on Thursday 27th October, at the Red House in Coupar Angus from 6pm. It’s a chance to hear inspiring business stories, network and learn more about the new ‘Enterprising Rural Perthshire’ programme. This is a collaboration between GrowBiz, Elevator (Business Gateway), Perthshire Chamber of Commerce and PKAVS – in partnership with Perth College UHI and FSB - offering a range of support, events, training and mentoring to all businesses in rural Perthshire. Funded and supported by Rural Perth & Kinross LEADER, it’s a ‘first’ in Scotland, and its aim is to ensure that anyone starting or running a business in rural Perthshire feels connected and supported.
There will also be news of a new enterprise fund launching in early 2017 in Highland Perthshire. Everyone is welcome – whether you’re just thinking of becoming self-employed, or a fully-fledged business or social enterprise, it’s an opportunity to meet other rural enterprises and support organisations in an informal setting.
Bring along your business cards and/or flyers. The event is free and there’s a light buffet available from 6pm (presentations will start around 6.45).
