GrowTraffic is excited to announce that we will be a headline sponsor for the upcoming Invest In Rossendale Business Event.
We stepped up to act as sponsor for the Invest In Rossendale Business event, which will see the great and good of Rossendale’s business community get together at this exclusive event, where former Dragon’s Den star and entrepreneur Piers Linney will give the keynote speech and GrowTraffic’s own Rachel Weinhold will be on the live Q&A panel at the event!
What Is Invest In Rossendale?
Invest In Rossendale is an initiative created by Rossendale Council to help local businesses start, grow and succeed in the Valley. Through Invest In Rossendale, local business owners can access advice on funding and grants, recruitment and business growth.
They receive help in finding potential business property and land and can access planning and licensing advice. Invest In Rossendale also offers opportunities for marketing support as well as hosting workshops and networking events.
Each year, the Invest In Rossendale event brings together Rossendale’s most prominent businesses, Members of the Council and also management of Rossendale Borough Council for a business-focused evening.
This year, following an extremely challenging 18+ months, the event will focus on recovery and reflection. Brad Hacking, Rossendale Council Business Advisor, said: “We will look at how local companies have copes, ridden the waves, shown resilience and strength of character and how they are now looking forward to forging ahead with growth plans and building their businesses.”.
This year, the event is back and better than ever. It will be held on Wednesday 22nd September 2021 from 5pm. Invest In Rossendale will take place at the recently renovated Whitaker Museum & Art Gallery in Rawtenstall.
Tickets cost £22.50 and are limited so attendees are encouraged to buy their tickets in advance. The Invest In Rossendale business event will include:
- Opportunity to network with likeminded people
- Opportunity to learn about current and future Rossendale Borough Council projects
- “Question Time” Q&A panel session
- Talk by Dragons Den star and “champion of small businesses” Piers Linney
- Tour of the Whitaker
- Selection of delicious food options
If you have a Rossendale-based business, or you are interested in the future of business in Rossendale, book your place here. Some of the GT team will be in attendance and after 18 months of pandemic madness, we are really looking forward to meeting old and new friends!
Why Are We Sponsoring This Event?
GrowTraffic is a mainly a Rossendale-based business (although some of our team live and work as far afield as Yorkshire!) and we are passionate about the future of Rossendale.
Many of our clients are Rossendale-based and over the years we have worked with an array of Rossendale businesses and organisations, including Rossendale Borough Council, Rossendale Leisure Trust, Rossendale Connected, Rossendale Soroptimists, Friends Of Rossendale, Valley At Work and many more.
By working alongside Rossendale businesses, organisations and charities, GrowTraffic strives to make Rossendale a better place to live and work.
Of sponsoring the event, Simon Dalley said: “Whilst we have a base in both Lancashire and South Yorkshire, we very much think of Rossendale as our home territory and it’s a core part of our ethos to make a difference in our local communities. As such I’m so excited that we’ve been able to sponsor and ensure this year’s event will go ahead. I know Rachel will do a great job on the Q&A panel on the night and I’m confident all the attendees will have a fantastic evening in the all-new surroundings of the new and improved Whitaker Museum.”
