Boost for Bradford startups as city aims to become UK’s ‘fastest growing economy’
A programme offering support to young startups in Bradford is returning to the city next month.
The second Northern Max initiative will focus on nurturing and growing digital businesses in the area, offering guidance and help with funding to the most promising innovators.
Northern Max 2 will aim to allow delegates to scale their organisations through access to innovation, investment, technical and business expertise.
It is part of the wider AD:VENTURE programme, which is funded by Bradford Council, its regional partners and the European Regional Development Fund.
Kyran Parker, director at programme delivery partner Redkite Innovations, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be the delivery partner for Northern Max.
“RedKite Innovations is passionate about helping organisations, large and small, to grow and develop through our programme of bespoke support.”
Kyran added: “Our team are looking forward to meeting with, and making a difference to, businesses from Bradford and the wider Leeds City region.”
Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, Planning and Transport, Cllr Alex Ross-Shaw, commented: “We have an objective in place to be the UK’s fastest growing economy in the next decade.
“As well as being ambitious, we are realistic and that means that we must work with others to achieve this. Giving young companies and entrepreneurs access to programmes like Northern Max will make all of the difference.”
Northern Max 2 will get underway on February 5.
