Elevate Worcestershire Grant
Established SMEs based in Worcestershire can access between £1,000 and £10,000 in grant funding to fund growth projects.
Whether you are looking to expand your operations, invest in cutting edge technology, improve your marketing strategy, or expand into new markets, the Elevate Worcestershire Grant has got you covered.
Grants are awarded on a match-funded basis, meaning the SME will need to provide at least 60% of the total cost of the project.
