Could your business use £4000?

Cumbria Business Growth Hub’s new subsidy scheme is now open for new applications.

If you’re a business that works mainly with other businesses or is looking to grow the B2B side then you could access 40% match funding up to £4,000 to use the services of a specialist consultant to help your business develop and grow. They can also support businesses that can demonstrate real growth potential.

So could your business benefit from?

  • A new or upgraded website
  • Refreshed or new images/videos
  • Marketing planning/branding support (we can’t fund printing costs)
  • HR, legal, accountancy advice
  • Business planning and future proofing (including succession planning)
  • Accreditations such as ISO or SALSA

The funding must be used for new projects which have yet to start and the minimum project spend needs to be £2,500 for the Growth Hub to pay £1,000. It’s a really simple application process – just 3 pages, 3 quotes and you choose who does the work. A decision is made within 2 days of receiving the application and once the work has been completed they just need a few pieces of evidence to be able to pay direct to the supplier.

If you’ve already received funding since January 2019 unfortunately the Growth Hub won’t be able to consider an application.

Anyone interested in finding out more please email – please get in touch if you’re not sure about eligibility as they have flexibilities which may mean they can support you.
