£4 million cash boost for Lincolnshire's small and medium sized businesses

Small and medium sized businesses in Lincolnshire will be able to access free expert advice and grants to grow their business after a £4million cash injection into the county's Business Lincolnshire Growth Hub.

Funding has been secured by Lincolnshire County Council from the European Regional Development Fund for a three-year programme to boost local economic growth and create jobs across the county. The support is available exclusively to small and medium sized business in Greater Lincolnshire (including North and North East Lincolnshire).

It is designed to help businesses:

• Understand their current business position and the basic pillars needed to support their growth in the future
• Get their business ‘investment ready’ and access finance for growth
• Save energy, reduce waste and become more resource efficient
• Manage supply chains more effectively and access new supply chains

A number of grants will also be available to businesses to help them grow – starting from £1,000 and rising to £10,000.

Further information and full details of the programme and the grants available can be found by searching the Advice and Grant Scheme Finder on the Business Lincolnshire Growth Hub website: www.businesslincolnshire.com. For more information visit www.pect.org.uk/BusinessLincolnshire.
