I’ve got no experience with grants and after I spent some time on Google I am even more confused than before. Lots of organisations seem to offer only advice.
One of my clients runs a small factory in SE London within the food industry. It’s quite a successful start-up and it started to generate promising traction. My client would like to expand and purchase additional equipment and he is looking for a grant.
The chances are any grants will be offered on a local basis and will revolve around use of regenerated land, creating employment, green initiatives or anything else that is specific to the needs of that area.
The council local business development folk or LEP should be able to point you in the right direction.
In many cases they will require match funding.
I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
