Business Growth Grants

Grants to encourage businesses that have the ambition and capacity to grow.

We are not currently accepting new applications for Growth Hub Grants. 

The pipeline of interest for the Growth Hub grant schemes exceeds the value of the available grant funding.  We are now paused to undertake a review and are not accepting new applications at this time.  

Businesses can still book a meeting with us to talk about their investment plans and strong grant propositions can be placed on a reserve list for consideration, should funding still be available after the review period.  


£3 million of grant funding to encourage businesses that have the ambition and capacity to grow and improve their productivity whilst also delivering improvements in environmental sustainability and enhancing social responsibility.

The grants can fund activity that will help your business to grow but you must be able to show how it will create a positive economic impact for Cornwall and Isles of Scilly. 

In addition to general business growth grants, we have specific funding for:

  • manufacturing SMEs to help them adopt industrial digital technology solutions.
  • new or improve existing training hubs or business support offers.
  • the local social economy, including community businesses.
  • employment growth, particularly in areas of higher unemployment.
  • feasibility studies.

However if you have any investment ideas for your business, then get in touch. We have a team of expert Business Connectors that can discuss your ideas in more detail in a free business review.
