Business boosts with faces of the future

TWO West Midlands initiatives, Graduate Advantage and 2wm, are coming together to provide an invaluable networking event for local businesses on Wednesday 31st March. 'Big on ideas, short on resources? Innovative solutions for West Midlands businesses,' will be held at The Enterprise Centre, Coventry, is the ideal opportunity for regional SME's and larger organisations to create new business links and opportunities, whilst learning about innovative solutions to their business needs.

Graduate Advantage aims to bring local graduates and students and regional employers together in a mutually beneficial alliance to encourage talented graduates to seek employment in the region. Advantage also gives local businesses access to the best new graduates in their sector.

2wm is a regional website which aims to give local businesses online support and advice tailored to their specific needs. It offers a regional community by bringing like minded businesses together, and also provides a variety of links to business support programmes, regional search facilities, land and property searches, jobs, grants, news and events.

Representatives from both of these schemes will be available at the event to discuss how their services can benefit different local organisations, and how they hope to help place the West Midlands firmly on the map for SME's, by providing the companies with the best opportunities and business solutions.

For more information on the event please email enquiries@graduateadvantage.co.uk or telephone Catherine Stevens on 0121 204 3000.
