Project in focus - support for Yorkshire businesses

We delivered a programme which allowed eligible Yorkshire businesses to access two days worth of our time to support bio-based start-ups or the commercialisation of new bio-based products/services. This support is part of the BDC’s ERDF-funded business support programme which came to an end in June 2023. Our team is now looking for other sources to support local SMEs.
