Finding financial help for your new or growing businesses is often a fruitless endeavour. Long delays and complicated paperwork can often mar the process, and many businesses never get as far as claiming the monies on offer to them because of this. Introducing the Grant for Enterprise and Grant for New Business, NBV’s “quick and easy” match funded Business Grants that could help you break the financial constraints that are holding back your business expansion.
Before applying for the Grant for Enterprise the slow internet connection and outdated ICT in use at Chesterfield business Mitchells Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers was beginning to hamper their company growth. With their grant of £1043.75 Mitchells were able to upgrade their ICT, helping to provide a stable platform for their colleagues and clients who use CloudMitchells. “Gaining grant approval was very quick and easy and the NBV team was at the end of the phone or email if I needed anything.” commented Partner Andrew McDaid.
Creative imaging production company Dgtl, based in Nottingham, are another local business riding high following the award of an Enterprise Grant. General Manager Jack Gunter told us “The (production) equipment we’ve purchased is brilliant for the business and the quality of our work has improved and has allowed us to pitch for higher profile jobs which demand the very best equipment.”
Grants of between £1,000 and £2,500 are available*, and many businesses have already benefitted from a process that recent applicant Hannah Ellis, director of Brown Dog Creative described as “quick and simple.”
Dr. Apostolos Papadopoulos from Lincolnshire business Crop Intellect Ltd praised the assistance provided by NBV in helping him secure £2,338.13 towards the purchase of specialist equipment, consultancy costs and external expertise for his research & development company. “The help from the advisor at NBV has been invaluable, especially in identifying where the spending would be most appropriate. They have offered a professional service and we are immensely grateful to them.”
Although financial can often seem in short supply, the Grant for Enterprise and Grant for New Business have proven to be a game changer for many businesses keen to expand within Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
