Coast to Capital has launched its 2019-20 Growth Grant Programme. The programme provides grant funding to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and social enterprises in the Coast to Capital area.

The Coast to Capital Growth Grant Programme is designed to stimulate capital investment to help businesses introduce innovation and improve productivity.


In last year's programme a grant of £94,000 was given to Insulated Tools Ltd to help purchase a large capacity injection moulding machine and essential equipment to expand their advanced engineering and manufacturing processes which has allowed them to expand into five continents.


Businesses in the Coast to Capital area are encouraged to discuss their growth plans with their local Growth Hub Account Manager and to determine their eligibility. You can be directed to your local Account Manager by calling 01293 305965 or email: growth.hub@coast2capital.org.uk. More details on the programme and eligibility documents can be found on our website.
