Development Bank of Wales to help local entrepreneurs
Development Bank of Wales has teamed up with Cardiff Start and the Welsh Government to offer open surgeries to local entrepreneurs.
The open surgeries, which will take place on 5th December, 2017, in Cardiff, will aim to break down the barriers between key organisations and the community. They will be free to join with attendees given 10 minute slots with the organisation of their choice.
The four teams will each play an important role in the business ecosystem in Wales and around the capital. The Welsh Government sector teams help connect businesses with potential support available in Wales; Cardiff Council’s Economic Development team facilitate business growth; and the newly named Development Bank of Wales runs one of the UK’s largest tech seed funds, investing in early stage start-ups and businesses.
It is hoped that by facilitating discussions between key stakeholders and the community, will help strengthen ties and create new opportunities for local start-ups to amplify and accelerate their business growth.
