URGENT - Please note the UBI Fund is now fully allocated with applications already being reviewed at the next Panel meetings. Existing Expressions of Interest that have already been logged will be reviewed, but it is suggested that you contact the Grants Team at Plymouth University before starting your application (submitting your bid will result in a charge to the business with no guarantee of being reviewed). In the unlikely event that there are funds remaining, those applications already logged at today's (5th April 2016) date will take preference in any review. The Grants Team can be reached on 01752 588340/588903 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (note there are still other grants available – contact the Grants Team)
Unlocking Business Investment
Businesses across Devon, Plymouth, Torbay and Somerset can apply for grants of between £25,000 and £499,000 as part of the Unlocking Business Investment programme. Funded through the Government’s Regional Growth Fund, the £5 million programme is being
delivered as a partnership between North Devon+ and Plymouth University and is supported
by the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership.
Grants are available to eligible growing businesses that are able to deliver job creation as part
of their development plans. Grants will be focused on capital items such as plant, machinery
and premises, but IT and software, research and development, training and site rental costs
may also be considered. Projects must be completed by 31st March 2017 with jobs created
by March 2019.
Small, medium and large businesses can apply but the amount of grant will vary dependent
on size of business, location, and job creation outputs.
