Enterprise M3 is delighted to announce the launch of the Enterprise M3 Growth Fund to support opportunities and address constraints that may be holding back growth across our area. This round of funding is exclusively focused on those projects that can be substantially delivered in 2018/19.
Since 2012, Enterprise M3 has used its Growing Enterprise Fund and Local Growth Fund to support transformational projects that will help to see our economy grow and flourish. To date, we have made over £100m of funding available across Hampshire and Surrey and this is delivering vital jobs, new homes and business growth.
The next 12 months will see the publication of Enterprise M3’s Local Industrial Strategy which builds upon the foundations set out in the Strategic Economic Plan and we want to use this opportunity to kickstart activities that will support our future priorities. There is an urgency to press ahead with plans that will make an impact on our economy and expressions of interest will therefore be judged against their deliverability, their strategic fit and any ability to repay quickly the funding that Enterprise M3 will provide.
There is £10m of funding available and we are seeking Expressions of Interest. The link provides further details and information and we encourage prospective applicants to get in touch with us to talk through any potential ideas. You can contact the team on firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the office on (01962) 846755.
We will keep this opportunity open until all funding has been allocated and have closing dates for Expressions of Interest throughout the year. The first closing date is 13 April 2018.
