Help for you and your business
With six million SMEs in the UK, accounting for 99% of all businesses, 33% of all employment, and 21% of economic turnover – the pandemic sent ripples through our economy and communities.
Many businesses in our region had to close or operate at reduced capacity throughout the pandemic. It’s no surprise that two years of uncertainty and financial worries has taken its toll on small business owners.
The good news is that the GetSet Grow Devon programme is here to help you get back on track, helping you develop your skills, gain access to growth grants, and have one of our advisors on hand to talk through your challenges to help you give your business the boost it needs.
The programme is now closed to new applicants.
Looking to grow your existing business?
If you are a business that has been trading for under three years, employing less than 10 staff and based in Devon (not including Plymouth & Torbay), we can offer a range of support to help you access grant funding, build your business planning skills and help your business grow sustainably.
We understand that to work better as a small business you need support tailored to you. This programme is particularly focused on supporting businesses most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic such as construction, retail and tourism & leisure but we would encourage businesses from other sectors to register their interest too using the button below.
