Exclusively for Gloucestershire’s SMEs, find out how your business can access up to £40,000 worth of grants through Scale Up 4 Growth at an online event, hosted by Gloucestershire College in partnership with UWE Bristol and NatWest on Wednesday 31 March at 2pm.

What is Scale Up 4 Growth?

Scale Up 4 Growth has launched in Gloucestershire with a total of £1million worth of grants available for small and medium sized businesses in the county. We are looking for businesses who want to take their organisation to the next level or business start-ups who require capital to kick start their new enterprise.

Whether you want to invest in new premises, new markets, new products or new systems to allow you to trade internationally, accelerate growth, build your team or start manufacturing, Scale Up 4 Growth can help you to achieve your business goals.

Scale Up 4 Growth will provide grants of £10,000 to £40,000 to enable businesses to develop their potential and create job opportunities by using the grants to scale up and overcome barriers to growth. The grants will fund 35% of the total project costs.

Join us on Wednesday 31 March at 2pm to find out more
