Dear Business Associations,
I hope you are all well and have had a good summer break.
We have been made aware of some grant funding being offered under a new scheme being offered by Innovate UK known as “Smart Grants”.
The scheme is very similar to the Micro Business Grant Scheme and invites small businesses with a project idea to apply. Grants of up to £500,000 are available for projects lasting between 6-18 months and up to £2million is available for projects lasting between 19-36 months.
Project proposals must demonstrate the following criteria:
Further details on the scheme can be found using the following link: https://apply-for-innovation-funding.service.gov.uk/competition/389/overview
Please do share this with your members as it is a good opportunity to access large grants to support business growth.

"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
