Coast to Capital drives growth and enterprise across the region. A key part of that is supporting businesses that want to invest and grow from start-ups and SMEs to large businesses.

We do this by supporting a number of initiatives and funding streams.


The Coast to Capital Business Navigator Growth Hub service

The Business Navigator service is your one-stop-shop for business support and funding advice. Access to free face-to-face business advisors, an online information portal and telephone helpline for businesses and entrepreneurs who are looking for a simple and easy route to business advice and finance options.


Enteprise Advisers Network (EAN)

We are engaging with businesses in the area through an innovative project to make sure that young people take the right decisions about their future career. We get businesses and schools to work more closely together through the Enterprise Advisers Network. The Enterprise Adviser is a senior business person, who will work with a school so its teaching staff are fully aware of the employment opportunities on offer locally, as well as, training and development techniques available. The scheme is now being rolled out across the whole of the region. We currently have over 20 number of schools and 27 business mentors and are still recruiting.


Loans and Grants

Coast to Capital offers a range of grants, loans and equity schemes for businesses of all sizes. Such as the Growing Places Loanwhich provides funding to help kick-start and support major development projects and the Business Growth Grants which offer up to £100,000 to SMEs looking to expand. Please refer to our Funding section for more information on what support is currently available.
