If your business is in one of the following sectors, then the new South West Growth Fund may well be of interest:  Advanced Engineering, Marine, Digital Creative, Environmental, Manufacturing, Food Processing, Electronics and Pharmaceuticals.

The South West Growth Fund (SWGF) is an £8.7M grant fund that is able to provide investment grants to small and medium sized enterprises throughout South West England and large companies within the Assisted Areas of South West England. These grants, ranging in size from £15,000 to £999,999, are awarded on a competitive basis to growing businesses that intend to make substantial new capital investments that will lead to quality, permanent job creation.  

The money comes from central Government’s Regional Growth Fund and its principal purpose is to create new, high quality jobs.

A grant prospectus is available with full details on eligibility here

Competition for the grant will be high and following a successful Expression of Interest, businesses are required to submit a business plan, application form and financial forecasts. These are all areas that the Thomas Westcott team are experienced in helping clients with.
