Business Growth Calderdale celebrated its first anniversary with a breakfast meeting at the Shay stadium.
Representatives from several companies presented how they had benefited from the project and encouraged others who have yet to engage with it to do so.
So far 1,200 Calderdale companies have been engaged with 325 referred for intensive support.
Business Growth Calderdale is a part-European funded project, supporting small and medium-sized businesses to become more competitive and develop new products and services by linking them into the resources and knowledge that universities offer.
Its overall objective is to make Calderdale’s economy more competitive, diverse and resilient. The project is due to finish in June 2014.
The Environmental Business Pledge was also launched at the meeting.
It is free to join and promotes a company’s environmental commitment.
