New small business grants launched in East Midlands

Small businesses in the East Midlands can now apply for a grant of £5,000 as part of a new initiative.

The new Small Business Grants programme is part of a partnership between Salesforce and small business support network Enterprise Nation.

The applications for the grants in the Midlands runs until midnight on June 7.

Find out more about it here.

To be eligible, firms must:

•Be registered at Companies House
• Have been established for at least 12 months
• Have not received any other cash grant during 2020 in relation to COVID-19 from any government
• Be based in the UK with a British bank account
• Have between 2 to 50 employees
• Meet all other eligibility requirements as stated in the grant programme terms

Emma Jones, founder of Enterprise Nation, said: “Taking on debt is not an option for every business, especially now. This grant will open-up opportunities firms might otherwise not be able to afford, such as accessing support to help them pivot, learning how to access customers in new ways and increase skills.

“We’re seeing a growing appetite for businesses to up their digital game as well as adapt to the new ways of working that are emerging.”
