Grants of up to £5,000 to support growth of small businesses
Norfolk Community Foundation is currently helping to deliver a grants scheme for local businesses wanting to grow.
Norwich 4 New Enterprise (N4NE) grants programme is a scheme that has the support of a number of local organisations who make up the decision making panel including Aviva, Mills & Reeve, Norfolk County Council and Norwich City Council.
Up to £5,000 per grant is available for existing organisations based in Norwich, Broadland or South Norfolk, with at least 12 months trading accounts and employing up to 10 people. The panel would like to see evidence of 50% match funding towards the total cost. The funding must be used to support business growth, which will either create at least one new job or demonstrate that the business has growth potential within 12 months. The grant can be used to develop new products or services, procure professional services, undertake training and skills development, the acquisition of capital equipment, refurbishment of premises or the purchase of equipment or machinery.
