Small and medium-sized businesses in Somerset can apply for grant funding worth up to £6,000 to help them grow and develop thanks to the latest initiative from Conservative-run Somerset County Council. The Business Growth Support Programme is set to launch as part of Somerset’s work funded by Community Renewal Funding from the UK Government.
The Business Growth Support Programme will support 30 small and medium-sized businesses to boost the pace and scale of their development. The initiative will prioritise businesses working in the Clean Growth, Aerospace, Digital, and Agri-Tech sectors, including their supply chains.
Grants will be awarded to businesses to allow them to access specialist and expert business support service providers to meet their own specific needs and have a transformative impact on the business.
The grant is one of five programmes being delivered through the Unlocking Somerset Prosperity initiative designed to support businesses and entrepreneurs across the county.
There is only a short window to apply for these grants, with the call for applications closing on 25 February.
