Launch of new Business Support Fund in County Durham
We’re pleased to announce that we are launching a new North East Business Support Fund specifically for County Durham businesses.
Businesses can now access an improved offer of up to 40% funding towards Business Improvement projects costing between £2,500 and £8,000 (maximum funding of £3,200) and / or access a fully funded 2 day Business Improvement Masterclass.
This is a new programme so businesses that have benefitted from previous NBSL funding can apply for this support. Applicants do not have to demonstrate evidence of obtaining 3 quotes.
The programme will be formally launched in February but County Durham Businesses can apply for a Grant or a place on a Masterclass with immediate effect by visiting here or you can speak with John Atkinson, Business Funding Adviser at a DBN meeting.
This £3.7m 2.5 year project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2014-2020 and will support 620 SMEs.
