MEDILINK MIDLANDS BIG ASK – THE STORY SO FAR, AND NEXT STEPS…
The B2B COVID Business Opportunities is the third in our Big Ask series of ‘Here to Help’ business support services. The creation of the ‘Big Ask’ was about quickly mobilising crisis support offering relevant and regular communications to inform businesses of the regional needs and opportunities prevalent to supply issues caused by the advent of COVID-19.
Medilink Midlands has worked with the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) and on behalf of the Mayor at West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) to forge new partnerships with Midlands based businesses and NHS Trusts to manufacture and supply PPE.
As the immediate health impacts of the virus begin to ease, we are turning our attention to further supporting businesses through the economic impact of the lockdown measures; again trying to provide a single focused resource businesses can turn to, by collating and offering needs and opportunities for collaboration for businesses, with access to a one-stop-shop in order to search and respond to live opportunities.
We are now launching the next and third phase of our support for businesses through the crisis – Big Ask #3. Allowing us to continue supporting the needs of the region, share opportunities to maximise advantages for businesses, and where appropriate through collaborative working.
HOW COVID-19 B2B OPPORTUNITIES WORKS
Your chance to find new business opportunities, requests for suppliers, consultants, and distributors.
As companies relay to Medilink Midlands their needs, requirements, or business opportunities these will then be posted on the Medilink West Midlands website. If you’re interested in an opportunity, complete the online form and your details will be forwarded to appropriate companies posting the business request/opportunity. More on how it works here.
Like to post your own B2B Opportunity? – Please go to our B2B COVID Business Opportunities page and download the template and email it to us. Once processed we will then post on our websites, and look to see who in our networks may be ideal and interested in your B2B opportunity and then direct them to reply.
