What is a revenue grant?
Having a healthy working capital is critical when growing your business, it’s cash intensive and often full of unexpected challenges.
Our revenue grant is designed to support you to mitigate the cost of commissioning external support that is currently acting as a direct barrier to your business growth.

How much can I apply for?
We can contribute up to £20,000 of grant funding, on a 50% match funding basis. This means that the grant will cover 50% of the cost that you would incur when commissioning a professional adviser or consultancy service.
For example, if a development team supporting you to implement e-commerce functionality to your website will significantly increase your profits and create jobs, and your best quote is £10,000 to implement this work, the Grant will cover a maximum of £5,000.
Am I eligible?
Your business will meet our baseline criteria if you have:
- From 3 to 249 employees
- A trading address in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough
- A balance sheet less than €43m (~£38m)
- An annual turnover less then €50m (~£44m)
- Ambition to grow faster or to continue scaling rapidly (~20% year-on-year)*
There are some other specific requirements that only apply to a small minority of businesses. These are described in the more detailed guidance and will be discussed with you by your dedicated Growth Adviser.
