New Business Support Fund in County Durham
County Durham 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 was formally launched in February and County Durham Businesses can apply for a grant or a place on a Masterclass with immediate effect by visiting https://nbsl.org.uk/county-durham 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.
