Calling all ambitious businesses across the Isle of Wight – don’t miss out on the opportunity to get a grant of up to £25,000 and fully funded specialist services from GetSet for Growth.

Run by GetSet Solent, which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the grants will be available to all small and medium businesses (SMEs), across the Isle of Wight and wider Solent region.

Grants of up to £25,000* are available to enable businesses to invest in their future growth, boost the economy and provide more jobs to the area. According to government figures, 73% of UK SMEs claim aspirations for growth.

However, many find that obstacles like finding enough profitable customers and accessing finance are holding them back. GetSet Solent aims to help these ‘ambitious but stuck’ businesses combat these two main growth barriers.

“This is a really exciting opportunity for businesses across the Isle of Wight to get funding to develop and improve their offering for the future. We know the Isle of Wight and the wider Solent area is full of talented companies and entrepreneurs and we can’t wait to deliver this funding. The grant programme is there to help
ambitious businesses unlock their growth potential both locally and nationally.”
