Cornwall Business Week is having a rebrand for 2019, with new events and activities and a new date in June.
Following a decade of successful events, Business Week is embracing new ways of working with a focus on digital, allowing business owners of all sizes to get involved without the need to travel. There will also be the traditional get togethers to keep up to date with the latest developments, networking opportunities and celebrating success.
PKF Francis Clark will be hosting their 13th annual Finance in Cornwall event during Business Week. Scheduled for the morning of 25th June, Finance in Cornwall 2019 will take place at Newquay Cinema and offers delegates a chance to hear presentations from providers of funding and business support to SMEs in the county. Sources of grants, debt and equity will all be present as will the Growth Hub and other business support agencies.
Tom Roach, Partner at PKF Francis Clark commented;
“We are delighted to be involved in Cornwall Business Week 2019. We are currently liaising with a number of partners including the Growth Hub, British Business Bank and Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales to improve still further what has become a very popular event over the years. If you are a business owner in Cornwall or Isles of Scilly, we really hope you can join us.”
‘Innovation for Business’ is also set to launch during Cornwall Business Week, on Wednesday 26th June brought to you by Acceleration Through Innovation. The one-day event will showcase the latest research and innovation trends which are changing the world as you know it. Bringing together a mixture of business leaders, innovators and academics from the University of Plymouth with national speakers, they’ll be exploring how forward-thinking businesses are adopting fascinating innovations, and new technologies, to secure their place in the future.
Thursday 27th June is the new date for your diary to celebrate at the Cornwall Business Awards. Now in its 14th Year, the Awards will have new categories and a brand-new “People’s Choice” winner, a public vote from all the finalists.
Kirsty Miles-Musgrave, Communications Manager at Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth and Skills Hub said;
“To keep things fresh and vibrant, we felt it was time to make a few changes to Cornwall Business Week, bringing together the business support community to offer a wider range of events and activities. If you are running a multi-million-pound business or just thinking of starting out as a sole trader – there will be something for everyone!”
