The new BEIS Business Basics Fund was launched on 26 June by the Minister for Small Business, Andrew Griffiths MP.
The fund will help improve the productivity and performance of small and medium businesses in England. We’re looking for ideas from within your communities to test ways of encouraging small, medium enterprises (SMEs) to take up existing technology and business practices that we know can improve productivity.
A share of £2 million is available in this first call to develop and trial ideas. You could:
Bid into the fund yourself
Or encourage groups and delivery partners in your network to bid into the fund
Or even better, bring together a collaboration of different partners.
To find out more and apply by 4 September, please go to the application pages on the Innovation Funding Service website:
