New monthly competition from Smallbusiness.co.uk to help SMEs start-up and grow
Businesses at least one year old and turning over between £50,000 and £500,000 could land £5,000 by entering a new monthly cash competition from Smallbusiness.co.uk.
By filling in a single online form, they can enter the Small Business Grants competition launched by the long-running business advice website for free and be in with a chance of winning £5k in cash.
The Small Business Grants initiative – in association with Travelers, Shelley Stock Hutter, Melt and A City Law Firm – has been designed to help small businesses start up and grow by offering monthly financial assistance and benefits to maximise their chance of success.
Smallbusiness.co.uk says the application process is simple – all business owners have to do is fill in a form talking about their business. They should detail key achievements, using figures and examples where possible, such as turnover growth, key contracts won, partnerships forged, or anything else that helped their company move forward.
At the end of each month, a shortlist will be compiled of the top applicants, which will be sent to a panel of judges, made up of leading entrepreneurs and industry authorities. The winner for that month will be announced in the middle of the following month.
As well as receiving cash, grant winners will benefit from editorial coverage exploring how they used the money; articles that offer an interesting insight into just how a cash injection can benefit small businesses and help them flourish.
Smallbusiness.co.uk Editor Ben Lobel said: “For years, our readers have been asking how they can get hold of grant funding, and while there are a few initiatives out there, they often require applicants to jump through hoops to get the money they need to invest in growth.
“Small Business Grants offers monthly cash to leading small businesses of any sector, no strings attached. All you have to do is fill in a single application form to give yourself a chance of winning. It really is as simple as that.”
Applications for the Small Business Grants initiative can be made here. Only one application per business per quarter is permitted. Good luck!
