Transport iNet Continues to Provide Vital Boost to Regional SMEs

Jonathan Walters  -  Jan 05, 2012  -  Comments Off on Transport iNet Continues to Provide Vital Boost to Regional SMEs

The Transport iNet through ERDF, is continuing to showcase regional talent and encourage growth by taking a team of SMEs from the East Midlands to visit Oyster Marine, giving them the opportunity to meet leading industry contacts who could aid their business development.

The event, due to take place on 8th February 2012, will give delegates the chance to build contacts at Oyster Marine and learn more about the running of the successful company. Representatives from each SME will then meet a procurement team from Oyster as a further networking opportunity.

Sam Clarke, Transport iNet Innovation Advisor, said: “Following the reduction in many support functions, including Business Link, the impartial and face to face advice we can provide has become more important for SMEs wanting to grow in a difficult climate. We have used our own contacts and industry knowledge to organise this event which will hope will bring real and measurable value to the companies we work with.

“These companies are from a range of sectors so this event is also useful for transfer of knowledge and expertise as well as being an important opportunity to network with industry experts who could change the future of their business.”

“Introducing growing companies to leaders such as Oyster Marine is a fantastic way of making introductions to industry professionals, potential suppliers and buyers.”

The Transport iNet is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) with the aim of increasing the level of innovation in the East Midlands, thus helping to improve business competitiveness, margins, sustainability and growth.

It enables specific sectors to work together, share ideas, technologies, intelligence, innovation and create a link between industry and the academic community.
