Funding available for North East Businesses

Funding available for North East Businesses

Funding is now available for North East Businesses to support marketing, web and brand projects through NBSL. As a registered provider we’re working with a number of our North East clients, who’ve accessed this fund to support brand and web projects, to get that bit of extra value out of their marketing budgets. So, we thought you might find this useful too.

There’s more information below, or if you’d like a chat about how this fund can support your project then give us a call on 08451 222611 or drop us an email.

More about the Fund:

The North East Business Support Fund (successor to NBSL’s previous Leadership and Management Advisory Service) provides support and funding for eligible SMEs and social enterprises that have potential for growth and are based in North East England.

The offer includes:

  • Up to 40% funding for business development projects (including branding, marketing strategy, website  and social media projects)
  • Maximum funding of £1,400 excluding VAT
  • Links to other complimentary funding in the North East

The service (funded by ERDF) provides grant support giving businesses a fantastic opportunity to access specialist help, to develop the growth and profitability of their organisations.

If you employ less than 250 people, run a private sector company or social enterprise, undertake the majority of your business in the Business to Business arena and can show that you have aspirations for growth over the next three years, then you may be eligible for up to £1,400 of funding support from the North East Business Support Fund, matched by a contribution from your business.

The fund is only able to support certain types of project and is for companies that operate in a business to business market – it would be useful if you’ve read the guidelines before completing the application.

    A great scheme, and we have already seen a load of people who have got funding.

    We have been offering a start up package to new businesses, and can’t believe how many people have had their funding applications completed in such a short time.

    If anyone is interested in our start up package, let me know!
