Summary of Project
A low rate of business start-ups, innovation and low average growth are factors affecting the Coast to Capital area. A decrease in the availability of business finance has contributed to this. Business Finance is a finance company supporting local enterprises to grow by offering micro grants, business growth grants and other financial support pathways. The Local Growth Fund awarded to this project has helped to support the finance available to local start-ups, entrepreneurs and other small and medium enterprises.
