Small business grants launched to help Northamptonshire businesses

The Business & IP Centre Northamptonshire (BIPC) has launched Restart Small Business Grants, open to Northamptonshire-based businesses who have been registered for 12 months or less, as well as those who simply have an idea and need support in launching their business successfully.

The Small Business Grants form an additional part of Northamptonshire BIPC’s Reset. Restart programme, which is part of a wider, national initiative of workshops and dedicated support, led by the British Library’s Business & IP Centre.

Successful applicants will receive:

  •  £1,500 grant for business expenses
  • A year’s free membership with the Northamptonshire Chamber
  • Ongoing support from the BIPC Northamptonshire team

The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday 28 March 2021.

Shortlisted applicants will be given 7 days’ notice of the Dragons’ Den-style grant panel sessions which will be held on Thursday 15 April and Friday 16 April 2021. Successful applicants will be notified by Friday 30 April 2021, with a public announcement at the beginning of May.

Cllr Lizzy Bowen, Deputy Leader of Northamptonshire County Council, said: “We know this is a difficult time for start-ups. That’s why we are delivering a dedicated webinar programme to support entrepreneurs and business owners, which can be accessed remotely.

“As an extension of the Reset. Restart programme we wanted to go that one step further, and so we are delighted to be able to support start-ups with a £1,500 grant to help bring to life new businesses to start-up, innovate and grow.”
