The Government is currently running a Growth Vouchers scheme, which provides matched funding (of up to £2,000) to UK businesses. The scheme is designed to help businesses find trusted and accredited strategic advisors to help grow their business, either through investment in attracting and retaining new staff members or through attracting new clients and revenue streams.
The categories of help available are:
- Expanding your workforce (recruiting and developing your staff)
- Finance and cashflow (raising finance and managing your cashflow)
- IT and web (making the most of digital technology)
- Leadership and management (improving leadership and management skills)
- Marketing and customer service (marketing, attracting and keeping customers)
The Government vouchers will fund up to half of the cost of the advice, making it a very cost effective way for your business to get the help and advice it needs to succeed.
Growth Voucher Programme Eligibility
- Your business registered in England
- Have 249 FTE employees or less in your business
- You are actively selling goods and/or services
- Have an annual turnover of less than £45 million
Be independent (i.e. less than 25% owned by one or more external organisations)
Time is running out!
You do need to move quickly as the scheme is closing to new applicants on 31 March 2015, meaning you have just 13 days to apply! For more details on the Growth Voucher scheme, and to apply for this funding, please look here.
