Are you a Leicestershire company trading B2B and looking to grow?

The Business Gateway Growth Hub is making funding available to improve productivity or introduce low carbon efficiencies

The Business Growth Grant is still open for applications. This grant, from the Business Gateway Growth Hub, is available to small and medium-sized businesses based in Leicester and Leicestershire that trade B2B, have been running for over 12 months and want to develop and create jobs.

Grants from £2,000 to £25,000* are available providing 35% towards project costs. The grant could be used for:

  • Implementing new innovative technology products or services that improve business performance.
  • Capital equipment costs i.e., new machinery directly related to the growth of the business or the development of new products/services.
  • Upgrading your capital equipment to move to a more technical/automotive approach, to create low carbon efficiencies or improved productivity.
  • Marketing/promotional activity that clearly demonstrates added benefits to the company (excludes updates to a website).

(Please note these are examples. The eligibility and scope of each individual project will need to be considered.)

This grant is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and run by Leicester City Council in partnership with East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire), Leicestershire County Council and the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership Ltd (LLEP).
