Growth Voucher Scheme: £2000 grants available for SMEs
Did you know about the Growth Vouchers Scheme?
There is £30 million in vouchers available to help small businesses grow through the use of subsidised business advice. Vouchers can be claimed to pay 50% of the cost of the advice giving you the opportunity to claim up to £2000 back.
At Clements Marketing, we have been selected as an accredited adviser for the government run SME growth scheme. We can help businesses with their marketing and provide digital advice. Good digital advice can help your business grow significantly and you may be unaware of some of the ways that you can improve your digital presence. We are passionate about what we do
This government programme helps small businesses get strategic business advice on:
- marketing, attracting and keeping customers (an area of our expertise)
- making the most of digital technology (an area of our expertise)
- finance and cash flow
- recruiting and developing staff
- improving leadership and management skills
The aim of the government run research project is to make it easier for small businesses to seek expert advice to help with future growth. Every business that participates in the Growth Vouchers programme will be monitored to examine their progress over the next 2/3 years. This is to identify which types of advice really make a difference to small businesses.
In order to be eligible to apply for the vouchers, you must meet the following criteria.
- You must have 250 employees or less
- be registered in England
- actively sell goods or service
- be independent (ie no more than 25% is owned by other businesses or organisations)
- have a turnover of less than €50 million
The Growth Vouchers Scheme is being run as a randomised control trial, which, in simple English, translates as roughly 3 out of 4 voucher applications being accepted. This means that some, unfortunately, will not receive vouchers. However, on the bright side, vouchers worth up to £2000 will still be given to the majority of small businesses who take part in the experiment.
If marketing and digital technology are areas which you feel your business can improve in, please get in touch to see how Clements Marketing can help you get the most out of your business with the help of the Growth Voucher Scheme. We will be more than happy to help get the application started. You can get in touch at 0115 8232 772 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
