Up to £50k grants available to help businesses grow

Chesterfield and North Derbyshire businesses can apply for grants towards capital and revenue projects.

The Derbyshire Business Grant Scheme offers funding from between £2,000 and £50,000, which are available towards Capital or Revenue projects with the aim of supporting businesses to expand, evolve or relocate, helping to create increased investment, growth and job creation.

Sole traders, partnerships, limited companies and social enterprises that are liable or will be liable to pay business rates as part of the grant funded project can apply. A maximum of 50% of the total eligible project costs will be available and funding will awarded to support improved productivity, technology, systems, supply chain and skills development within businesses.

Chesterfield businesses wanting to find out more about the funding can attend a drop in session organised by Chesterfield Borough Council’s Innovation Support Project on 15 November at The University of Derby’s Chesterfield Campus from 9.30am to 12.30am. The session will allow businesses to have an initial discussion about the possibilities of funding to help their enterprises achieve the step change they are seeking.

Dom Stevens, Destination Chesterfield Manager said: "It is great to see this new support available for businesses across Derbyshire.  We encourage Chesterfield businesses to attend the drop in session to find out more about how they can use this funding to support the growth of their business.”

The fund opened for applications in September 2018 and will run until the 31st March 2020.

This drop in session will allow businesses to have an initial discussion about the possibilities of funding to help their enterprises achieve the change they are seeking.

This event is organised by Chesterfield Borough Council’s Innovation Support Programme, which is part ERDF-funded through the D2N2 Growth Hub. Destination Chesterfield works to support the Council’s ongoing commitment to business.
