Who can we help?

Question Mark Image

To date we have helped over 355 businesses purchase the equipment and machinery they need to grow, investing around £3.1 million of European grant funding across the entire Greater Lincolnshire area.

To be eligible for Grants4Growth funding, your business must:

  • Already be trading for at least 9-12 months and be based in the Greater Lincolnshire area
  • Employ less than 250 employees
  • Have a turnover less than £44 million a year and
  • Use the grant funding to purchase physical capital assets (such as machinery and equipment)                                         

If you can demonstrate how you plan to either increase sales, develop products or exploit new markets we want to hear from you.

Of course, creating quality employment opportunities is important too, so grant applications that help create local jobs are always well received.
