Business start-up grant

Our scheme is available to support new businesses to start up and grow in Wychavon by providing grants and access to a fully funded support package of business advice.   We seek to encourage the occupation of commercial premises to help regenerate town centres, stimulate entrepreneurship, create new jobs, and enhance the sustainability of new businesses. 
Pre-start businesses and new businesses that have been trading less than 36 months can apply for a grant of up to £1,000, or up to £1,500 if they are in or moving into premises that are liable to business rates.

The grant must be match-funded, pound for pound from the business’s own resources. Only capital expenditure on an approved project/investment is eligible.

Please read the guidance notes before completing the application form.
