Grant funding available for start ups in Tees Valley

Grant funding available for start ups in Tees Valley

Since MMD started trading in 2005, we have supported hundreds of start-up businesses across Teesside. Marketing is one of the first things entrepreneurs consider when they take the plunge to start their own business. A name for the company, a logo, website and stationary are all vital to start promoting a new business.

One of the biggest barriers to overcome when starting a new business is a lack of funding. For many years there have been a wealth of funding streams available for established businesses but little for start-ups. This has changed with an exciting new programme by Tees Valley Business Compass. Up to £10,000 is available for Tees Valley based startups that meet the criteria and intend on employing people. There are also a range of FREE workshops available, managed by the team at Enterprise Made Simple.

If your new business will trade in one of the following sectors you could be eligible for the funding.

> Advanced Manufacturing
> Process, Chemicals and Energy
> Logistics
> Health and Biologics
> Digital and Creative
> Culture and Leisure
> Business and Professional Services
