£10,000 grants available to Lincolnshire businesses

Funded through the University of Lincoln

Advanced engineering, manufacturing and logistics businesses in Greater Lincolnshire, with a particular focus on Boston, Grimsby and Scunthorpe, can benefit from a package of business support and funding worth over £300,000, thanks to a University of Lincoln growth accelerator programme funded by the ERDF.

The programme, which is part of a wider Productivity Programme aimed at SMEs across Greater Lincolnshire, will run until June 2023 and has two options: 12 hours free business support for any SME including start-ups, and an Accelerator programme.

Participants in the Accelerator programme, which is run online over eight weeks and takes three hours a week, receive support and advice from some the county’s best known business leaders and experts who will deliver workshops on everything from strategy to business planning and marketing.

At the end of the programme the businesses have the opportunity to pitch for funding of up to £10,000 to help them implement and fulfil their growth plans. The scheme is unique, with no other business support programme providing this type of grant funding.

The grants are aimed at SMEs

The Productivity HUBs Accelerator programme is aimed primarily at logistics, transport, advanced engineering and manufacturing businesses, with priority given to businesses in Boston, Grimsby and Scunthorpe.

With a couple of places left on its January 2022 programme, which starts on Wednesday 5th, the University is keen to hear from suitable businesses interested in taking part.
