In celebration of its recent expansion, the Business & IP Centre Cambridgeshire & Peterborough has announced the launch of a brand new support programme to businesses in the area.
BIPC Jumpstart is a unique initiative offering grants, resources and support designed to help start-up businesses get set and grow. In the knowledge that funding is often crucial to early onset businesses, £30k of grants will be awarded at the beginning of 2022 as a key benefit of the BIPC Jumpstart programme.
The programme is open to start-up businesses that registered in Cambridgeshire or Peterborough on or after 14 January 2021, or those that will be registered and trading in Cambridgeshire or Peterborough within two months of receiving the BIPC Jumpstart grant in February 2022.
To be eligible, business owners need to fully engage in at least three BIPC business support tools, before submitting a business plan and BIPC Jumpstart application form. Applicants will be asked to highlight how a grant allocation (of up to maximum of £5,000) would make a difference to their business.
Applications are open from Thursday 11 November until Friday 14 January 2022.
