Since 2014 the D2N2 Growth Hub has engaged with over 5,000 businesses. To celebrate this milestone - and our third birthday! - we'd like you to join us for an evening reception at The Village Hotel in Nottingham.
You will hear from David Williams, Chair of the Growth Hub Project Board on our aspirations for the coming year and from a Growth Hub client on how we've supported them through their growth period. Our Business Advisers will also be on hand to introduce you to key partners and of course, there will be plenty of opportunity to network with other ambitious businesses from the D2N2 region.
Enjoy a light buffet and a glass of fizz and help us toast our birthday and your ongoing success.
