Small Business Grants

Small Business Grants is a competition run by SmallBusiness.co.uk, offering a monthly £5,000 grant, which does not have to be paid back, to small businesses at least one year old with a turnover between £50,000 and £500,000.

The winners will be those companies deemed by our panel of judges to have the most potential in their sector, based on factors such as turnover growth, innovation, aspiration, key projects completed, contracts won and partnerships forged, as well as the extent to which £5,000 can help the company succeed and/or grow.

All you need to do to enter our monthly competition is complete the application form below telling us about your business and why you deserve to win. Your application will be considered by our panel of judges and the monthly winner will be revealed in the middle of the following month, with the prize distributed soon after.

Please note: companies may only apply for this initiative every three months. For example, if you apply for October’s competition, you will not be eligible to enter again until January’s competition.

Deadline for October’s competition is 31 October 2017
