The York Funding Bulletin has been updated to take into account some new funding options and the closure of some existing ones.
Keep an eye out for details of the new Investment Readiness programme. This is designed to help businesses understand the funding options available to them along with the actions they need to take to ensure they have the best possible chance of being successful.
Later in the year we hope to have more news about the return of the Digital Enterprise Grant. Businesses can register their interest in this fund now by clicking here and selecting the Register Now option. The grant will be open to SME’s, trading B2B (business to business) who have a compelling digital project. This could be a new website that incorporates e-commerce functionality, anything that helps a business automate or streamline end to end processes or something entirely unique to your business.
It is anticipated that the maximum grant will be capped at £5K and will provide a 50% contribution towards total project costs of no more than £10K.
There is likely to be further grant based support for businesses operating in the digital and creative sector via the #Grow programme from Leeds City Region LEP. Watch this space for more information on this exciting programme.
