Northern Max Pixlr

Digital and technology firms in Bradford are being urged to take advantage of the return of the Northern Max support programme.

The free business support programme, now in its third year, will be delivered from the City Hub, and technology-oriented companies less than three years old are invited to take part.

Northern Max 3 will take place over ten weeks, starting on 23 April. It includes one to one mentoring alongside workshops and masterclasses led by experienced business coaches. Topics covered will include preparing a business plan, setting targets, profiling target customers and marketing. There will also be hot desking facilities available, and an opportunity to pitch for potential investment at the end of the programme.

The aim of Northern Max is to enable companies in the digital sector to grow and develop the reputation of Bradford and the Leeds City Region as a hub for the technology community.

Entheos Media Group took part in the programme in 2019 and have since been able to expand their client base. Creative director Ryan Murphy said: “The programme was enormously helpful for taking our own expertise in our given field and giving us the tools necessary for transforming our skills into a functional and growing business.

“Since our time at Northern Max, we’ve got funding, grants and have gained a bigger client base than we ever would have without it. The workshops and talks were exceptionally helpful at giving us the insight and outside the box thinking that allowed us to see our business in a whole new light, and allowed us reshape our business model so that we could grow exponentially.”

Northern Max 3 will be delivered by Greenborough Business Management’s 10x10 accelerator programme in partnership with Bradford Council and AD:VENTURE, a business support programme for new businesses in North and West Yorkshire funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
