Collaboration 4 Growth project has been extended for a further 3 years and continues to be funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
What is the Collaboration 4 Growth project?
We are working in partnership with Lincoln BIG to provide business support to new and existing SMEs who trade on a business to business (B2B) basis.
Please note businesses operating solely on a business to consumer (B2C) basis are ineligible to receive support from this project.Download the Expression of Interest form
Through this project, there are revenue and capital grants available between £2,000 and £7,000 to support activity such as; the creation or implementation of new systems and purchasing new equipment.
Please note that successful applicants will be required to pay for the full cost of the project upfront and reclaim this from Lincoln BIG. It is therefore imperative that applicants have the funds to cover the costs before submitting an application.
For business interest in applying for a grant will be required to complete an Expression of Interest form.
Grant applicants will be asked to provide three quotes in relation to the proposed expenditure as well as other supporting documentation which will be assessed prior to consideration by the grants panel.
The panel will discuss all applications and decide which businesses will be supported according to funds available and outputs delivered.Download
Businesses can access 12 hours free business advice on a one-to-one basis, or receive support in the form of workshops/networking opportunities.
