Secure a grant from DIT’s Internationalisation Fund

The Department for International Trade has now launched its new European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) for eligible East Midlands businesses.

Match-funded grants of between £1,000 and £9,000 are available for future activity (subject to eligibility and availability) to support work to develop new overseas markets.

To secure a grant, you will need to fund a proportion of your costs yourself. This varies according to where your business is based and will be either 40 or 50% of the total cost. East Midlands businesses looking for support can find out more here.
