Leeds Chamber has moved its business support, membership and representation teams to a newly refurbished building and will be joined by the Business Enterprise Fund, the Chamber’s subsidiary company, which provides finance and start up loans to companies across the region.
The Chamber will be working closely with its partners RTC North, which runs Enterprise Europe Network and ‘Innovate 2 Succeed’ programmes, Innovate UK and China Britain Business Council to ensure continuity of service in weeks and months to come.
Speaking about the move, Chamber Chief Executive Sandy Needham said: “This is an exciting period for the Chamber as we bring a number of business support services together. In our conversations with companies we know that their list of priorities includes finding new customers, both home and abroad, ensuring they are responding to the needs of these customers whilst making sure they can fund growth and expansion. As we look to the future and the prospects of a post-Brexit world, companies across our region will have access to support and expertise to help them find new markets around the globe; assistance in developing new products and services and access to finance to achieve their growth aspirations. All of this will be available under one roof.”
The Chamber and its partners will be relocating to new offices in Carlton Tower, St Paul’s St, Leeds, LS1 2QB.
