Support for Start Ups

Please note that the current round, which closes for applications on 26 July 2019, will be the last, ahead of refreshed SME funds launching later in the summer of 2019.

The Solent LEP is currently reviewing its SME and start-up funding offer, in response to the updated Solent LEP geography, feedback from the local business community and changes in national policy. It is anticipated that the funds, once approved by the Solent LEP Board, will be launched and available online later this summer.
