Business Development Programme

Shortcut to this page: www.birmingham.gov.uk/bdp

The Business Development Programme is now closed.

All of the funding for the Financial Assistance scheme and all of the places on the Great 200 Leaders Coaching & Mentoring programme have been allocated.

We have been inundated with Financial Assistance applications and as a consequence, have had to close funding Round 3 early. Applications received will be reviewed, and grants allocated subject to availability of funding.

We realise that the early closure of Round 3 will be a disappointment to many SMEs.

However, the Business Development & Innovation Team are in the process of applying for an extension to this fund from the European Regional Development Fund, so if you would like us to add your contact details to our Financial Assistance Grant Waiting List, please complete the Expression of Interest (EOI) form below, and we will contact you should/when future funds become available. Please email your completed EOI form toSuzanne.dottin-payne@birmingham.gov.uk.
