The government has set a priority of reducing the regulatory burden on business. So to help businesses to grow the Better Business for All(BBfA) project aims to support businesses primarily by making business regulations easier to access and understand.
Meeting regulations is not as difficult as is often believed. Local regulators across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, are committed to supporting businesses by providing advice and guidance that helps them understand and meet their responsibilities.
Peter Richardson, Chairman of D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership – the UK’s most inspirational post code, will outline the LEP’s plans, actions and activities to help create a better connected, prosperous, resilient local economy with the objective of creating 55,000 private sector jobs by 2023.
And don’t forget – D2N2 is there for SMEs not just the great global brands. Also, if you’re young and talented we’ll help you develop your next big idea.
Karen Edmonds, lead for ‘Better Business for All’ across D2N2, wants to develop new and innovative ways of working with the regulators and you to stamp out excessive regulation and allow your business to flourish. Are you optimistic or cynical about the new business support environment – why not join the discussion and potentially influence the local business development landscape? Can the regulator really be your best friend, not necessarily your worst nightmare?

The Shop Window – your chance to take the floor
Every Ingenuity Knowledge Exchange breakfast offers both business owners and people from within the University the chance to make a brief presentation to the room about something they are looking for help with.
From the University? If you have a business-facing project or want to work with local small and medium-sized businesses as part of your research, this is your opportunity to make contact with business owners who are already interested in what happens at the University and who may be interested in participating with your initiative.
From business? Sorry, but this isn’t time for a standard 60 second pitch – feedback tells us that our businesses want something different from Ingenuity. But it is your opportunity to do some research of your own, ask for volunteers for new product or service trials, to ask if anyone has any recommendations for difficult-to-find suppliers, or simply share some news that the audience might not find out about otherwise.
Email Steve Upcraft if you would like to participate in a future Ingenuity Knowledge Exchange Shop Window.
