"Take Control: Live" Event

The North East is an exciting place to be, especially when it comes to the thriving startup and SME landscape.

An important aspect of this increasing success is collaboration; running a business doesn’t need to be a solo venture.

Supporting other businesses through collaboration can take any form, including joining up on single projects, utilising each other’s skills, and exchanging advice. Here at GrowthFunders, we work with a number of businesses located in the North East area, to promote growth and success via the exceptional talent available.

One of the businesses we’ve worked with on a number of occasions is Harlands Accountants, who aim to help their clients take control of their finances and build a better business through the accountancy, business advisory, and tax services they offer.

We’d like to tell you about an event that Harlands Accountants are holding as part of their Business Builder workshop series. You can read our recap of last year’s summer event which featured guest speaker, Caspar Berry, on “Risk-taking and decision-making in poker, business, and life” by clicking here.
