Spaces are available at X-Forces and Solent LEP’s launch event, announcing new growth funds being made available to the Armed Forces community locally.
Solent LEP has created a bespoke grant fund for young and start-up businesses from the military community. This event is a chance to hear about the complexities faced by transitioning members of the Armed Forces, how to overcome and adapt, and the success they have found through enterprise.
Speakers will be present from government, the Armed Forces community, and unprecedented access to Google’s Digital Garage will be available.
Solent LEP and X-Forces recognise the contributions of the Armed Forces community and their continued contribution post-Service. Business planning support, mentoring, access to start up and growth capital, and on-going support available through this partnership are crucial to the success of small businesses.
Since June 2013 X-Forces have helped over 400 people into business. These businesses make a real difference within their local communities and the economy.
