£5000 technology grants set to help businesses emerge from Covid-19.

Under this latest government scheme, small and medium sized businesses will have access to grants of between £1000 and £5000 to help access new technology and equipment as well as other business advisory services to help them get back on track and recover from Covid-19.

The £20m support package will be fully funded by the government and distributed through local Growth Hubs across England.

Eligibility criteria is likely to vary by region so, in the first instance, please do check how your business aligns with your local Growth Hub’s guidance. For example, in Greater Manchester, priority will be given to those in the Visitor Economy Sector.

Growth Hubs are still determining precise funding allocations before tightening their own application criteria but many are currently accepting expressions of interest so now is the time to act.

If you think you might qualify, we suggest a quick chat with one of our consultants who’ll help identify where such a grant might add the most value to your business. This could be anything from improving hardware performance and connectivity to new software that automates business functions. They’ll likely be judging applications on tangible evidence of improvement in business efficiency.
