What is the Business Support?
We have an intensive programme of support available and our expert advisors will be on hand to help your business become investment ready. With fully funded workshops and seminars, you will have a full programme of support and we will be with you every step of the way. Since launching the scheme, several businesses have accessed the grant to procure accountant prepared business plans and financial information. This specialist support provided them with the ability and confidence to approach potential investors and financiers.
As a minimum, your business must:
Be trading in the Humber area – Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, North East Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire
Have less than 250 full-time equivalent employees
Have a turnover of less than €50m or a balance sheet of less than €43m
If eligible, SMEs will be able to apply for all aspects of the #GrowMySME programme.
What could it do for your company?
The Finance for Growth scheme can give you the specialist support you need to help with any financial aspects of your business growth.
Our advisors will also be able to signpost you to other solutions and relevant support as part of the wider #GrowMySME programme.
Our full package of support can help you apply the financial tools and techniques to achieve your growth potential.
Let us help you with:

Assisting you to understand what lenders/investors are looking for as an investment opportunity.
Helping you to understand the financial landscape and negotiate the financial options, products and support available.
