More details have been released of the East Lindsey District Council’s Business Expo on November 7.

The event, designed to celebrate the diverse and ambitious business community in East Lindsey, will be held at Stanhope Hall, Horncastle.

Open to everyone, ELDC is hoping attendees will take advantage of special offers and sign up for a variety of free workshops which will take place throughout the day.

The workshops are ideal for people starting, growing and marketing their own business.

They have been specially put together with small to medium businesses in mind.

Representatives from those networks will be available to offer help and advice.

Workshops confirmed so far include:

•‘Funding Business Growth’ - Russell Copley from Greenborough Management Ltd will cover the common requirements for a business plan, what financial information you should have available, and what other information you should have for your funding plan.

Russell will also run through the criteria and relative pros and cons of the four main funding options - self-finance, debt, grants and equity.
