£5,000 for amazing startups

Working together to support new business

Our latest campaign with Cavendish Enterprise will be giving 10 businesses the chance to get a share of £5,000 of extra funding through crowdfunding.

Cavendish Enterprise is a group of highly respected enterprise agencies from across the country, who have come together working in partnership to deliver nationwide contracts supporting start up and growing businesses.

By working together they have successfully delivered government initiatives such as the Growth Vouchers scheme and Ready for Business programme, to thousands of businesses in England. The partners are currently delivering the Start & Grow initiative to start up businesses with aspirations of high growth and to create jobs. The programme offers support, training, and advice to businesses for up to 3 years, together with help in sourcing appropriate funding.

The benefits to these businesses have been both financial and supportive, with qualified advice and training from expert business advisors within each region.

By providing support and finance, we are proactively helping the economy by creating jobs, and partnerships for the benefit of both the local and wider communities.
