  1. Local entrepreneurs can get expert advice and news on interest-free loans with a tasty breakfast thrown in at a free networking event on 3 October. Speakers for this free event include a senior Government Minister.

    Not only can participants network with other like-minded people, they can hear about the Escalate interest-free business loans scheme and from companies who have already made successful applications.

    Escalate is open to small and medium sized businesses in West Kent and East Sussex with the potential to expand quickly. In all, £5.5 million is available.


    Escalate loans are interest-free and normally unsecured. They must be used for specific projects that create jobs, support business expansion and help attract additional private investment.

    Experts will be on-hand to help businesses apply for Escalate funding.

    This free business breakfast takes place on Friday 3 October at the Brands Hatch Thistle Hotel in West Kingsdown from 8am to 11am. To register visit www.bsk-cic.co.uk/events/time-to-escalate-your-business

    Cllr Roddy Hogarth, the Council’s Cabinet Member for business, says:
    The event will cover:

    * West Kent - where ambitious businesses are going to grow
    * Creating a modern, social business
    * Escalate – the fund and how to make it work for your business
    * Why alternative finance is growing so quickly
    * Panel – Escalate success stories
    * Keynote speaker – senior Government Minister

    The event is hosted by the West Kent Partnership partnering with Kent County Council, Business Support Kent and the Federation of Small Businesses.
