Focus On Finance: Free SeminarArts Council England, North East invites you to ‘FOCUS ON FINANCE’ – a FREE seminar that answers all the questions you have regarding accessing finance.

**What is it about?**Whether you have high commercial growth aspirations for your business, or simply enjoy doing what you are best at – the reality is that your business needs finance to sustain and succeed. The majority of creative businesses are not aware of the range of funding options available to them, or how to access what is available. Therefore, creative businesses often end up being financed through personal savings and friends and family. Seems familiar? Why not come along to one of the three exclusive and FREE seminars in March? The seminar explores the challenging nature of accessing finance for your business. Guest speakers include finance providers of various loan schemes, grants and equity finance. A MUST for all creative businesses in the North East.
