Join Lord Young for the Growth Vouchers webinar

Growth vouchers are a new scheme from the Government that aims to help small businesses in England get the help they need to grow. £30 million of help is available for SMEs to spend on finding an accredited advisor.

The grant will cover 50% of the advisor’s efforts, with the business matching the amount. Thousands of accredited advisors who will accept the vouchers can be found on the Growth Voucher Marketplace powered by Enterprise Nation.

I know that one Tamebay reader has already been successful in bagging a grant for £2000 and claims that the process was both swift and easy (which seems almost impossible to believe for something that involves the government) and they are now sizing up advisors and working out precisely what help they need. I’ll keep you posted

The man behind the scheme in government is Lord Young, formerly a business minister in the 1980s, he’s now a sort of roving business champion within the government. So it’s apt that he will be talking about the scheme with Emma Jones and answering your questions during a webinar this week.

The webinar is on Thursday 6th February at noon and full details and registration details are on this page.
