Funding seminar in West Bromwich

By John Corser | Business Events | Published:

Black Country Growth Hub is holding a free seminar and lunch event to find out about a new funding call for tackling plastic pollution.

The ocean plastic solutions workshop is being held on January 30 in Sandwell Business Solutions Centre, Spon Lane, West Bromwich, from 9am to 1pm.

The Ocean Plastic Investment Accelerator competition can provide up to 100 per cent funding through a grant and private investment from Sky Ocean Ventures for early stage projects led by UK companies. The grant funding is provided by Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation.

Up to £1 million of grant funding and £1 million of private investment is available to support business-led innovation. This is to develop solutions that tackle the environmental crisis of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans.

The competition is open to single UK small (with fewer than 50 employees) and micro companies who are looking for grant funding and who want to establish an equity relationship with Sky Ocean Ventures.

The European Regional Development Fund supported event is being run as part of the AIM for the Black Country programme.
