Business Grants Consultants
Welcome, Gary Hellen & Associates offers specialist support to businesses searching for, and applying for, business grants or other sources of finance and funding. We primarily target small and medium sized businesses in all industry sectors, in particular we have extensive experience in working with early stage technology companies and start-ups. In addition we provide a range of business support services and help businesses to innovate to improve profitability.
Business Grants in the UK are available from a variety of sources including local authorities, the Technology Strategy Board, central government and the European Union. If you are looking for a business grant we can advice what is available and fully support you during the application process. Grants usually only fund a percentage of the work i.e the business will have to "match" the grant with private funds, and grant supported projects uusually have a defined outcome and end date. We can also advise and aid with finding the match funding if required.
Small Business Grants
We have extensive experience of working with small businesses and recognise the particular difficulties they face in many areas including experience and funding, and that applying for small business grants can be a daunting and off-putting experience. As such we provide much a more handholding, or even hands on, approach to small business grants applications to alleviate your concerns and ensure you gain the funding you require.
Grant consultancy is a major part of our offering. If you have used such support before you may have found the value to be patchy and the service variable. We have a different approach as grant consultants as all of or staff have extensive experience being on the "other side" and running grants schemes and appraising applications. This give us a unique insight into what is required and what is being looked for. We believe we can offer better value and a more thorough service allowing you to focus on running your business. Two of the main business grant schemes that may help you are TSB Smart Grant and Grant for Business Investment.
So if you are looking for help please feel free to contact us and see how we can help your business to develop. Even if you are not yet ready to start searching for funding feel free to contact us now with a suitable future start date and we will contact at that time.
All conversations are held strictly confidential and our initial consultation is without obligation. Note that although we are located in London our services cover the whole of the United Kingdom.
