OxLEP Business - Grant Workshop
Our Grant rounds are now always ‘open’, and eligible businesses can apply at any time. We aim to review ISfB applications once per month and eScalate applications once every two months, based on a cut-off date at midday on the third Friday of the month. We aim to let applicants know within 21 days of the cut-off date on whether or not their application has been successful. You will be advised as early as possible if there is likely to be a delay.
The eScalate programme offers grant funding between £1,000 and £25,000 to eligible SME businesses on a match funded basis for social enterprises and for start-up, growth, scale-up businesses
Go-Create Grants are offered as part of the Innovation Support for Business (ISfB) Phase 2 programme. Go-Create Grants are available on a competitive basis from £1,000 to £50,000 and are available to eligible SMEs on a match funded basis. Capital items can now be included in Go-Create grant applications for a limited period while capital funding remains available.
