Our local (and great) university here in Norwich, the University of East Anglia, has a history of helping small businesses raise capital to bring their innovative ideas to market.

Could be a loan or equity or simply first class advice!

They are keen to help in any way they can, and you don’t need to have any connection to the University either.

So much so they have a new initiative called ‘Invest East’ working in conjunction with Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils, and New Anglia Growth Hub – Saffron explains all in this excellent podcast.
