The South East Business Boost (SEBB) programme is offering growth grants to SMEs to help them with the cost of expanding.
The grants can reimburse up to 30% of the costs of qualifying projects to support business growth, enable job creation, and assist with the introduction of new products and services.
So far we have paid £2,908,853 in grant contributions to 558 businesses.
Grant support is time limited so contact us now to see how you can benefit from SEBB support.
