There are hundreds of grants available for small businesses. Using these grants can save you money, lower start-up costs and help your business reach the next level. The biggest benefit to securing a grant is that you don’t have to pay it back like a you would a loan.
If your small business is in a particular niche, specialism or even geographical location, grants are a great alternative, especially for start-ups and early stage businesses that are finding access to investment difficult.
Ambitious small businesses deserve to receive all the support they need, and even if Mercia can’t help out there are many other organisations, people and online resources that we work alongside to help you take that next step.
