Ever wondered what other businesses used their BGP grant funding for?
The case studies below illustrate the types of projects which were funded by BGP and which could easily be funded by BGP2. The good news is that BGP2 has been simplified and there are no longer 4 strands of support, just the 1, making it far more flexible:
