Scale Up 4 Growth online employer event

Business owners can find out how to access up to £40,000 worth of grants through Scale Up 4 Growth at an online event, hosted by Gloucestershire College later this month.

The event, held in partnership with UWE Bristol and NatWest, will take place on Wednesday 31st March at 2pm.

Scale Up 4 Growth has launched in Gloucestershire with a total of £1 million in grants available for small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) in the county. The scheme supports those looking to take their business to the next level, or start-ups who require capital to kickstart their new enterprise.

Scale Up 4 Growth provides 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 per cent of total project costs.

Ideal for businesses looking to invest in new premises, new markets, new products or new systems to allow them to trade internationally, accelerate growth, build their team or start manufacturing, Scale Up 4 Growth can help make business ambitions a reality.

During the event, Robin Halpenny, business growth partner at UWE Bristol, will explain how businesses can use Scale Up 4 Growth and will highlight the benefits of getting involved.

This online event is open to all small and medium sized businesses based in the Gloucestershire LEP region: Gloucester, Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, Forest of Dean, Stroud and the Cotswolds.

Scale Up 4 Growth is specifically aimed at small or medium sized enterprises, which includes support for pre-start-ups, start-ups, micro enterprises, social enterprises and sole traders, as well as established companies.
