THE BUSINESS GROWTH PROGRAMME HAS NOW LAUNCHED

We are delighted to announce that the new £33 million Business Growth Programme (BGP) has launched.

The package of support is designed to strengthen supply chains, stimulate innovation and grow existing Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) across the Greater Birmingham and Solihull, Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire and The Marches Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs).

The programme limits awards to one grant per SME from any one of the four components of the Business Growth Programme (i.e, you cannot apply for a grant from each component).

The four programmes are:

  • HS2 Supply Chain Programme- Offers grant support of £20k-£200k towards project costs for supply chain companies which have, or are in the process of securing, or have the ability to secure a contract for HS2.

  • Green Bridge Supply Chain Programme - Offers grant support of £20k-£150k towards project costs for supply chain companies operating in, or diversifying into the green economy.

  • Business Innovation Programme - Offers grant support of £10k-£30k towards project costs for SMEs investing in innovative close-to-market processes, products and services.

  • Business Development Programme - Offers grant support of £10k-£20k towards project costs for businesses looking to expand, relocate and improve access to markets.
