Over 75 businesses attended today’s Seaham Business Park networking event.

Around 25 exhibitors and 50 delegates took park in a speed-networking session aimed at showcasing the types of business support and funding that are out there for local businesses to tap into.

Santander, Northstar Ventures, EDBS, CDEMN, University Of Sunderland, NEPIC and RTC North were among the exhibitors, who all had three minutes to ‘pitch’ to small groups of delegates.

If you attended, or even if you couldn’t make it, and would like to know more about any of the funding and support organisations that exhibited, take a look at the event brochure below or get in touch¬†and we’ll be happy to connect you.
