OUR GUEST SPEAKER
We're extremely excited to have Exeter City Council’s Economy Manager, Maureen Gori-De-Murden as our guest speaker. Maureen knows more than anyone about business investments in Exeter, and so is perfectly placed to tell-all about exciting new projects which are happening in the region, and to discuss where grant funding has already made a monumental difference to the local area.

FURTHER FUND INFORMATION/BACKGROUND
The South West Growth Fund, part of the Regional Growth Fund is imminently open to applications, and Old Mill and Granted’s directors want to take this opportunity educate Exeter business owners on applying for grant funding.
Since its launch in 2010 the Regional Growth fund, (which the South West Growth Fund is part of), has invested £2.85 billion to help local businesses grow and take on more staff across England.
For every £1 invested through the RGF, the private sector has put in £5.50. The total investment of private sector support is expected to be £16 billion. 130,000 jobs have already been created and a total of 581,000 are expected by the mid-2020s.
This is a huge opportunity for Exeter business, however the whole of the South West will be fighting for this funding. With competition fierce, and such large amounts of money up for grabs, Exeter business owners will need all the advice they can get in order to secure the funding they're entitled to.
