NatWest announced as Headline Sponsor of Venturefest North West
28 August 2018
Venturefest North West 2018 is delighted to announce NatWest as its headline sponsor. The event has already attracted 1,300 registrations, underlining its status as the region’s biggest annual innovation conference and exhibition.
As well as a unique mix of inspirational speakers, absorbing breakouts – including Mindset and Pitching sessions run by NatWest Entrepreneur Accelerator – exhibitors and networking opportunities, Manchester Central on September 13th is the only place to be whether you’re a business, investor or from an academic institution.
Heather Waters, National Enterprise Manager at NatWest, said: “We know that entrepreneurs and small business owners are looking for more than a provider of financial services. They want a bank that helps them to concentrate on what’s important to them – establishing and growing their business.
“That’s why we’re delighted to support Venturefest North West 2018 and be part of an event which gives businesses in the region the opportunity to innovate, grow and access the knowledge, finance and expertise they need to progress to the next stage of their business journey.”
Philip Hargreaves, head of GC Business Growth Hub’s Access to Finance team, said: “NatWest have been strong supporters of Venturefest in the past and we’re really pleased to welcome them as this year’s headline sponsors.”
Philip, who has worked in commercial and corporate banking for the past 39 years, added: “With over 1,000 attendees expected, and a fantastic blend of speakers, workshops and networking opportunities with both angel investors and other business innovators, this year’s Venturefest promises to be exceptional.”
