Scottish Business grants
Scottish Business grants play a pivotal role in both creating and safeguarding jobs and bringing innovations to the marketplace. Companies based, or planning to set up, in Scotland can access grant funding from various sources.
Applying for grant funding, however, is a complex and time-consuming process. This is why businesses across Scotland rely on Consilium to drive their applications and improve the chances of a successful award.
In this article, we outline the main Scottish business grants that Consilium secure for clients and provide an overview of the primary criteria and requirements for obtaining these grants.
You can also learn more about Consilium’s Grants advisory services and how our team have secured over 200 grants to help clients achieve their goals. To arrange an informal discussion about grant funding, please get in touch with Linzi Wilson, Corporate Finance partner.
Scottish Enterprise business grants
Scottish Enterprise offers multiple grant options to businesses investing in specific projects. The criteria for, and conditions attached to, each type of grant award vary. However, common criteria are that the project would not go ahead without the grant, the business is committed to fair working practices and meeting net zero criteria.
Scottish business grants are available through the following Scottish Enterprise programmes:
Use the links above to learn more about each programme or get in touch with Linzi Wilson for an informal chat about securing business grants for your company.
Grant funding from Scottish local authorities
Individual Scottish local authorities often have support available for businesses in their local area. This is very much dependent on the locale and the quantum and type of support can vary significantly.
We work with businesses who have identified locally available aid, assisting in presenting information in support of their application. Speak to Consilium’s Corporate Finance team for an initial discussion about your business needs and any assistance with local support in your area.
