Share this Article:

Taking the next step with your business is crucial to growing its success. Whether it’s an under-performing website that isn’t converting or a digital marketing strategy that’s falling short of the mark, funding these growth projects can sometimes be problematic.

The North East Business Support Fund (NEBSF) has been established to offer financial support to businesses who want to enlist external expertise across digital marketing, website design and development and more. Grant funding of up to 35% is available to businesses planning improvement projects that will cost between £3,000 and £8,000.

For many businesses, this grant is crucial to helping them achieve their aims and objectives. In fact, NEBSF recently reached a new milestone, issuing funding contracts to 750 North East businesses. They’ve benefited from the initiative — will you do the same?

To be eligible for this funding, your business must be based in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear or County Durham, have plans to grow turnover and/or employ more staff and be able to begin the project within 60 days.
