Business Start-Up Grant

A fantastic opportunity has arisen enabling the Enterprise Team to offer on a time-limited basis, a Business Start-Up grant to early stage trading businesses. The grant can be up to £2500, but it must be used in accordance with strict terms and conditions.

The criteria are:

  • University of Huddersfield student or graduate (within the last five years)
  • Citizen of a European Union country
  • You work, or plan to explore, business-to-business (not retail)
  • Operating locally or at least in the Yorkshire area
  • Started trading within the last 12 months (evidence of trading will be required)
  • Must be registered or be prepared to register with the Enterprise Team to receive “Enterprise Support” to maximise the benefit of the grant
  • Not already in receipt of an ERDF-funded Start-up grant e.g. Activ8 Your Business

If you feel that you satisfy all the conditions above and would like to take advantage of this opportunity you will need to arrange to see a business advisor to discuss further as soon as possible.
