Start 2015 off with a bang by connecting with other professionals and business people in Dacorum by joining our new LinkedIn group.

This will help you build your network, share ideas, knowledge, advice and offer guidance and support on the best possible businesses practices and opportunities.

We aim to help promote inward investments into the borough by encouraging businesses to network with one another to improve our local economy.

Having launched a week ago, over 130 businesses have joined the group interested in building a social platform for business promotions, discussions and networking events.

Current group members are providing key feedback to help build the forum with suggestions such as setting up a face-to-face LinkedIn networking session in the near future; so watch this space. Join Dacorum Look No Further LinkedIn Group at www.linkedin.com/grp.

Dacorum’s Den is back for a fourth year in 2015! The Council will be offering grants of up to £1,000 for local businesses with less than 50 employees who want to grow their business.

Grants can be used to support businesses expand into a new market, try an innovative idea or develop and/or test trade a new product or service.

To register your interest and receive an application pack, please email maylands.reception@dacorum.gov.uk

The closing date for applications is Friday May 8.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to present their idea to a panel of judges on Friday June 12.
