“UWE Bristol has announced the launch of the next round of Scale Up 4 Growth (S4G) funding. SMEs in the region can apply for grants to support total project values of £20,000 to £30,000 to support their scale-up ambitions.“
The University has been awarded funding to pass onto the region’s businesses, but SMEs will have to move quickly – the deadline for applications is 29 February 2024 and all money will have to be spent by the end of June 2024. Successful applicants will receive 50% of their project funding from the UWE Bristol and will need to provide the remaining 50%.
Eligible SMEs need to have 5 or more employees, be based in Bristol; Bath and North East Somerset; North Somerset; Somerset; South Gloucestershire; South Wales; or Swindon and Wiltshire and must have ambitions to grow their business – increasing employee numbers and turnover. Businesses will be able to access support from the S4G team who can provide 1:1 support to shape eligible projects and provide bid writing support.Further information
