EOI: 31 March 2016 - Full Application: 31 May 2016
Unlocking Business Investment is a new grant programme for businesses across the Heart of the South West LEP area to unlock opportunities to deliver private sector investment, growth and jobs. UBI is funded by the Regional Growth Fund and is delivered as a partnership between North Devon+ and Plymouth University.
Please note a fee of £120 (£100 plus £20 VAT) is payable to the funder at the EOI stage to contribute towards initial checks and project review.
Grants will be focused on capital items such as plant, machinery and premises, but IT and software, research and development, training and site rental costs may also be considered.
All growing SME businesses in the HotSW LEP area can apply. Priority is likely to be given if you can show value for money by providing funding from other sources. On average businesses will need to provide around £65 to every £35 granted.
Projects must be completed by 31st March 2017 with jobs created by March 2019.
