East Cambs Business Boost 2017, organised by East Cambridgeshire District Council’s Enterprise East Cambridgeshire team, The Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEP, Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, the Federation of Small Businesses and Emerald Frog Marketing, consisted of exhibition networking coupled with business support and funding clinics held by local financial experts. Microsoft and Google also delivered keynote sales and marketing seminars.
Laura Welham-Halstead, Head of Communications and Connectivity at Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership said: “We are delighted Microsoft and Google took part in our first East Cambs Business Boost event and took the time to engage with local businesses and show them how to accelerate their sales and marketing functionality. The “Launch Zone”, where businesses, from start- ups and entrepreneurs through to more established small and medium-sized businesses gained financial advice, was also a big hit as experts shared their knowledge and support.
“The East Cambs Business Boost event is an enviable asset to the Ely area. Thanks to Bridge Fibre, our main sponsor, and Grovemere Property, PEM, Natwest, Ellgia Recycling and Premier Signs for their excellent support and making the day a highly enjoyable one. We look forward to East Cambs Business Boost 2018”.
