Grant Aid

If your business is in the manufacturing or Internationally Traded Services sectors you may be eligible to apply for financial assistance to help grow your business. Further information on financial assistance is available here.

Business Networks

Joining a dedicated business network is a proven method for meeting other small businesses with similar needs and challenges and for meeting people who have been through the start-up or early enterprise stage and are happy to share their experiences. You can broaden your range of contacts and get advice, help and encouragement from local people who know what you’re going through.
