Northamptonshire Growth Hub is holding drop-in sessions in eight locations across the county where experienced business advisers will be available to talk through how grants from £2,000 to £20,000 can support activities that lead to the development of new products, processes or services.


The grant scheme is part of a wider package of support offered to eligible businesses under the Innovate Northamptonshire project , which includes direct business advice, a variety of workshops and access to expert knowledge.

Innovate Northamptonshire is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and delivered by Northamptonshire Growth Hub – a partnership between The University of Northampton and Northamptonshire County Council, providing comprehensive and unbiased support for your new or growing business.

Businesses will be able to drop in at any point during the sessions to discuss their ideas and see if this type of grant funding is right for them.
