ENTREPRENEURS in Bradford could benefit from a new multi-million-pound fund to help them sell their services and products made in West Yorkshire to the world.

The third round of support has been launched in what is a £6 million fund for entrepreneurs from the Mayor of West Yorkshire.

The programme aims to find the best in the region, nurture their entrepreneurial skills, and turn their ideas into global businesses.

It offers access to nine months of tailored support, coaching and mentoring, giving a total of 75 people the help to develop fresh business ideas and grow the skills they need.

Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin, said: “We have already helped thousands giving them the skills they need to start and run their own successful business.

“Now, we will focus on best and the brightest minds in the region, catapulting them to the next level and turning their entrepreneurial ideas into the global businesses of the future.

“Our talented entrepreneurs are absolutely central to our vision for a stronger, brighter West Yorkshire.”

This support from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority will be delivered by a group of businesses and learning organisations from across the region, including the University of Bradford.

It builds on the success of the previous two support packages.
