Due to the high level of applications received, the Business Innovation Programme (BIP) has now closed.

Applications received will be reviewed and grants allocated subject to availability of funding.

We realise that the closure of this programme will be disappointing to many SMEs and therefore we are in the process of applying for an extension to this fund from the European Regional Development Fund. If you would like your contact details added to our BIP Waiting List, please complete the Expression of Interest (EOI) form below and we will contact you should/when further funds become available. Please email your completed EOI form to Hassan.Farooq@birmingham.gov.uk

In 2015, Birmingham City Council commissioned an independent evaluation of the Business Innovation Programme. The findings of the report indicated that the scheme makes an important contribution to the economy. You can read the full report below.
