"We're delighted to be able to offer this opportunity for growth businesses in the West Midlands to hear presentations from two key organisations in local business funding," commented Ash Mehta, Chief Executive of Orchard Growth Partners.

Attendees of the seminar can be sure that both speakers will provide excellent advice and information on raising business funds in the recession."
The breakfast seminar will be an ideal event for entrepreneurs, Finance Directors, CEOs and non-executive directors of growth businesses in the West Midlands. "There will be ample opportunities for networking as well as the benefits provided by the presentations themselves," Ash added.
