The Marches Growth Hub is keen to ensure that businesses in the region are able to take advantage of the considerable business opportunities available both via its local authority partners and other larger private and public sector organisations.
The third round of the Business Basics Fund is now open for Expressions of Interest (EoI) to run trials. Round 3 makes £2 million available for trial projects involving technologies which support business and administrative functions. As announced in the June 2019 government response to the Call for Evidence on tackling late payments, up to £1 million of this funding will focus on projects that could help address this issue. The closing date for the EoI stage is noon on Wednesday 4 December 2019. Following the EoI stage, shortlisted bidders will be invited to submit a full application by 19 February with the final funded projects expected to start on 1 June 2020.
Full details - including how to apply to this latest round of the fund - are now available at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/business-basics-programme.
