On Tuesday 1 October 2019 the final Elevate grant round commenced and will be closing on Wednesday 23 October 2019 at midday.
We are able to run this final Elevate Grant round due to underspend, and it is for start-up businesses only.
This is a competitive process and your business will need to have been operating for 12 months or less and must be claiming at least £1,000 which needs to be matched 1:1 by your business.
The Elevate Grant can be used for activities and projects within the business such as:
- Business consultancy
- Website development
- Marketing collateral creation, brand development and printing
- Marketing support, search engine optimisation and social media growth
- Business strategy development
- Market research
- Patent search activities
- Consultancy work to support licencing and franchising
- Exhibition costs
- Succession planning
Many Oxfordshire-based businesses have benefitted greatly in the past from this funding. An example is The Orange Bakery as an Elevate Grant part-funded their first commercial oven, which helped to further their production process.
