A meeting with coffee at Aura Innovation Centre


Free 30-minute sessions highlight broad range of business support on offer from University of Hull

Businesses across Hull, East Yorkshire and North Yorkshire are being given the chance to find out more about the diverse range of help, advice and support on offer from the University of Hull at a forthcoming networking breakfast.

Guests can book a free place on the fast-paced, 30-minute Speed Support Session of their choice, minimising the amount of time they need to spend away from their business.

Taking place at Aura Innovation Centre at the Bridgehead Business Park near Hessle in East Yorkshire on Tuesday 16 May, the Business Speed Support event is a valuable opportunity to connect with a range of different support networks and programmes led by the University of Hull. Those attending the event will learn more about the University’s impressive facilities, vast team of experts, training opportunities, funding, and the range of support on offer to help them take their business to the next level.

Sarah Clark, Operations Manager at Aura, explained: “We fully appreciate how busy business owners and leaders are, so we’re bringing our support programmes and schemes together under one roof to allow businesses to drop in and meet them - all in one place and at the same time!

“It will be hugely worthwhile for businesses to visit the event because, in just 30 minutes, they’ll get a clear snapshot of the wide and varied range of support on offer to them.”

Sarah added: “ Whether you’re looking to consult with our experts, develop your people or drive innovation, I’d encourage you to start your day by attending this fast-paced, fun and engaging session. The format is just like speed dating - but without the chat up lines - and has been designed to make it quicker and easier for businesses to connect with the University’s many different support programmes. Simply choose your preferred 30-minute speed networking slot or come along to network at a time to suit you.”
