Grants and funding

Whether you have a great business idea and need financial assistance to get your project started or are an existing business and need help to grow, we can help you to find suitable funding opportunities.

These can be in the form of grants, most of which require an element of match funding on the part of the applicant.  These are available for a wide range of business operations and eligibility varies greatly depending on the size of your business and geographical location.  Some are localised while others are national or European.

Small business loans

Government backed small business loans are also available when, for example, cash-flow is an issue.  These tend to have relatively low interest rates along with a repayment period of around five years and can usually be granted to enterprises which may ordinarily not meet the criteria for a traditional bank loan.

Contact us

To find out more, simply email jfrieland@rutland.gov.uk 

along with a synopsis of your business (existing or proposed).  We will then contact you to discuss your position in more detail and provide a list of funding options.  

We can also arrange a meeting if necessary to look at how else we might be able to provide support.
