If your business would benefit from support in developing your digital infrastructure and innovation, you might be interested in applying for a new digital innovation grant to help with any telecommunications or IT projects.
This new grant scheme is run by the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), and aims to help small and medium sized businesses develop their digital capabilities. The scheme aims to improve the use of digital technologies, helping businesses to adopt new technologies and adapt.
Grants available under the scheme range from £1,100 to a maximum of £5,000. The grant must represent 40% of the total investment, and your business should contribute the remaining 60%.
In order to be eligible for the scheme you must:
- Be based in the Leeds City Region
- Have fewer than 250 employees
- Have a turnover below €50 million p/a (approximately £43 million)
- Have a balance sheet total below €43 million (approximately £37 million)
- Have received less than €200k (£185,00) of State Aid in the last 3 years
For a modern small business, investing in technologies that can help drive your business forward is essential. Funding opportunities such as this one are rare, and only come along occasionally, which is why it’s so important to take advantage.
Investing in digital and innovation can help safeguard your business for the future and provide you with the platform needed to move to the next level, whatever that may be.
