Access to Growth Fund

What is the grant? 

The grant is for £1000 to invest in the growth of your business, by funding specialist consultancy to help you increase your existing trade outside Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.

You have to contribute just £500 to make a total investment of £1500+.

 

What sort of consultancy can I use?

That depends on what is right for your business plans, e.g. sales, marketing, website functionality, accountancy, or legal advice. This could include: 

  • How to improve your sales techniques
  • How to set up a sales system
  • How to price a service/product effectively
  • Advice on licencing or contracts
  • Advice on exporting 
  • How to improve your bid writing skills 
  • How to analyse your business data 

Why bring someone in to look at your business?

  • Specialist skills.  You are not an analyst...or an accountant or marketeer. Bring in an expert.
  • Help you make the most of the investment in your business
  • Get it right first time
  • Learn from others
  • You have an idea of what you want to improve – but how do you go about it?
  • Save time in researching all the options
  • Save time in implementation
