SYIF Profile Spring 2008 Newsletter

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the latest edition of Profile.

You may be reading this e-newsletter after attending one of our successful Roadshows which were held across the region.

The events gave local businesses and intermediaries the opportunity to find out more about SYIF and our future plans, further details of which are in our lead story.

We also include an update on the pilot Seedcorn Fund, which is now on target to fully invest £4.65m in early-stage companies. This is a great achievement and one which has capitalised on a major gap in the market.

The achievements of SYIF were also recognised at the Sheffield Business Awards at the end of 2007, where the Fund received the Wake Smith Regeneration Award for its best practice and successful track record in delivery of urban regeneration.

Examples of the backing provided by SYIF to businesses across South Yorkshire are highlighted in this e-newsletter, which I hope you enjoy taking the time out to read!

We do hope you enjoy reading this latest edition of Profile.
