Am I eligible?

These workshops are available for businesses, partnerships, sole traders, and registered charities, with a trading address located within Greater Lincolnshire (North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire & Lincolnshire).

To access these workshops, your business must complete an SME enrolment form in order to check the business’s eligibility against the funding criteria. (The form will be sent to you on completion of an Eventbrite booking - if one has not already been completed and on file).

As this is a business support focused programme, rather than a skills programme, all workshop/masterclass places are limited to one delegate from each business to ensure we can support as many businesses as possible at each workshop.

Through Eventbrite you are requesting to book a place on a workshop/masterclass and this delegate place will be confirmed via email once the SME Form and eligibility have been checked.

As this is a fully funded business support programme it is delivered free of charge so its success is measured based on the number of businesses that are supported and the hours of support. The eligibility dictates a minimum threshold; therefore, each SME must commit to attend a minimum of two workshops/masterclasses to comply with the funding criteria.
