The New Anglia Growth Hub is celebrating its busiest year to date in 2017. Over the past 12 months, the Growth Hub’s award winning team of advisors have helped businesses in the East access almost £2.8 of grant funding.
They have provided over 3,700 hours of face to face support to more than 700 small and medium businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk.
More than 100 projects have been supported by a combined £1m through the Small Grant Scheme, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which provides grants from £1,000 to £25,000.
For larger projects, the Growing Business Fund, provided by the New Anglia LEP, offers grants between £25,001 and £500,000. This year, the New Anglia Growth Hub awarded 19 individual projects with a total of £1.8m grant funding. This also created 189 full-time equivalent jobs in the region.
Nigel Best, Growth Hub Manager, said: “It’s been a great year for the Growth Hub and we’re proud to have supported so many local businesses, helping them to grow and support the local economy. Looking forward to 2018, we’ll be supporting more businesses with free, impartial advice and access to funding and other services.”
