Are you a small business owner, or do you know someone who is? This a great new scheme where you can get up to £2K worth of funding. Yes there is lots of funding out there, but it normally requires a lot of fusing!? Accounts, org charts, business plans and a blood sample (!?) required. Which is why I have never applied in the past. But I got the funding after a 5 minute online application and a 30 minute meeting. Click here to find out more about the Growth Vouchers programme.
The voucher can pay for up to half of the cost of the advice, so as long as you can match it you are good to go. You simply pay the supplier in full, after receiving the advice you then submit your claim. The other good news is that leadership and management isn’t the only area where you can get advice…
- finance and cash flow
- recruiting and developing staff
- improving leadership and management skills
- marketing, attracting and keeping customers
- making the most of digital technology
As a double whammy I have also just signed up to be a supplier for improving leadership and management skills! So if you want to work in this area let me know. Perhaps your skills could also lead you to becoming a supplier? But please forward this on to your network as this is gold mine waiting for diggers…
