- Feb. 6, 2014 - MANSFIELD, U.K. --
Invest Ashfield & Mansfield has been set up to promote Ashfield and Mansfield as key business locations within the East Midlands. The project is delivered by the Ashfield & Mansfield Regeneration Service and is jointly funded by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Ashfield District Council and Mansfield District Council.
The aims of the project are to connect with potential new business and encourage them to put down roots in the area, boosting investment and innovation. In addition, Invest Ashfield and Mansfield work closely with enterprise agencies and run a series of programmes that offer business support and a host of initiatives including grants, events and work placement schemes.
Club is one initiative that welcomes the involvement of leading local business figures who will aid in the development and promotion of start-up businesses, and strengthen the established business community. A recent addition to the Ambassadors’
Club is Richard Dearden, CEO of NBV Enterprise Solutions.
NBV is a not-for-profit enterprise agency that operates throughout the East Midlands offering a number of business support and start-up services to those in the region.
Richard Dearden said: "I am delighted to be part of the Ambassadors’
programme and help Ashfield and Mansfield build on its reputation as an attractive location for businesses to start and flourish.
"The area has a rich heritage in enterprise and business and I look forward to working with the Ambassador team to ensure Mansfield and Ashfield continues to develop and grow in the future."
