Here at SmallBusiness.co.uk, we are pleased to announce the launch of Small Business Grants, our new, free-to-enter competition awarding a £5,000 grant to a leading small business every month. The grant does not have to be paid back.
Applying for this exciting new initiative is easy. If you run a small business that was incorporated at least one year ago, are actively trading, and your turnover is between £50,000 and £500,000, you are eligible to enter. All you have to do is fill in a single form talking about your business; this can be done here.
As the leading advice website in the small business space, SmallBusiness.co.uk receives many requests every month from would-be entrepreneurs and existing company owners asking what financial assistance is available to help them, start, run, grow and succeed.
Whether you are launching a cafe, running a business from home, or perhaps taking on a franchise arm, you will require funds to start and grow your company. Depending on the type of business, this requirement may vary from a few hundred pounds to multiple thousands.
While some companies may be able to get away with minimal investment in equipment and staff at the beginning, others will be faced with immediate expenditures that are key to establishing their company.
The Small Business Grants initiative will help small businesses in this area, offering monthly financial assistance to maximise their chance of success.
Every month, one business deemed by our panel of independent judges to be the most deserving will benefit from a package including a financial grant, as well as being featured on our Small Business Grants site as a monthly winner.
In your application, make sure you include as much information as possible on your successes so far. Using figures and examples where you can, such as turnover growth, key contracts won, partnerships forged, or anything else that helped your business move forward, will help your nomination.
Our Small Business Grants scheme is sponsored by Travelers, A City Law Firm, Melt, and Shelley Stock Hutter. These selected partners are specialists in the small business sector and are focused on offering products and services tailored for SMEs.
