Devon businesses urged to apply for £1,000 grants
The Meet the Expert business support programme is due to end this year and there are still grants available for businesses to apply for.
Grants are on offer to help small or medium-sized enterprises in Devon to access valuable consultancy support and business owners are encouraged to apply soon, before the support programme ends later this year.
The Plymouth-based ‘Meet the Expert’ programme, now in its final year of operation, offers businesses across the county the chance to learn from experts in a range of fields such as strategy, sales, marketing, finance and legal advice. It aims to give support and advice to help overcome barriers, setting businesses on a more productive growth path. More than 230 businesses have been supported by the programme since it launched in 2020.
Fixed sum grants of £1,000 in match funding are available and businesses are asked to contribute just £515 themselves in order to receive bespoke business consultancy support. Applications for the next tranche of funding must be made by the end of July
What sort of thing can the grant be used for?
You can use the grant to access a variety of advice and support, anything from strategy and management and how to develop
a business plan, sales & marketing, website development or updating, social media and SEO advice, accountancy, HR, recruitment – pretty much anything that will help your business to grow and prosper.
