Self-made success Chloe Hall has joined a team of business bright lights set up to steer the economic recovery of the North of Tyne.
Bumble and Bloom founder Chloe Hall has worked with some of the globe’s biggest brands on marketing campaigns, all from her North Tyneside base.
Chloe has grown her business from a small start-up, to a successful staple in marketing and strategy, winning countless business awards.
The homegrown businesswoman is passionate about seeing more businesses in the North of Tyne grow and anticipates that the work of the North of Tyne Growth Fund panel will help to achieve that.
“I am extremely passionate about where I live and work and very much want to see businesses of all shapes and sizes grow and innovate right here on my doorstep.
For that reason, I wanted to be part of the North of Tyne Growth Fund”.
The Growth Fund, chaired by North of Tyne Combined Authority Director, Henry Kippin, consists of both public sector representatives and private sector experts.
It has been set up to review and provide funding for small to medium sized businesses in the North of Tyne area.
The North of Tyne Growth Fund is backed, in part, by the European Regional Development Fund, with £4.6m provided to help strengthen local organisations.
North of Tyne cabinet member for Economic Growth Cllr Bruce Pickard said: “Now more than ever, support for businesses in the North of Tyne is key.
“The business and local knowledge of our private sector panel members will allow us to best allocate the funds throughout our communities.
“Through collaboration, the Growth Fund Panel will be able to award funding and support to our SMEs, which will improve our economy, employment and long-term growth.”
