What is the grant available for?
The Small Business Grants initiative from SmallBusiness.co.uk is a free-to-enter monthly competition that gives small businesses a chance to win a £5,000 grant to invest in their company’s growth. This grant does not have to be paid back.
Eligible businesses can apply for FREE via our Grant Application form. Every month, a shortlist of leading entries will be sent to our panel of independent judges who will decide on the winner, considering factors such as turnover growth, innovation, aspiration, key projects completed, contracts won and partnerships forged.
Any eligibility criteria
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.

Our panel of independent judges will consider a shortlist of the candidates soon after the monthly application deadline has passed. The winner will be notified within three weeks and revealed in the news section of the site, and will be paid within 30 days of the winner announcement on the website, conditional on payment details having been supplied.
Winners will also be given the chance to feature in an editorial on SmallBusiness.co.uk to talk about the grant and how the money will be spent.
