New and expanding businesses currently operating in, or considering relocating to, four areas of Glasgow (Calton, Canal, East Centre and North East) can access funding from Glasgow City Council through a new scheme – the Community Business Boost.
The Community Business Boost, which has a budget of £370,000, will support new and expanding local businesses by offering part-funding of premises costs over two years – 50% of annual rental costs, up to a maximum of £15,000 over the period – as well as other support and advice.
Businesses who can make a clear case that they will grow sustainably and create jobs are invited by the council to submit an application for funding to support the lease of a property in the city.
Eligibility criteria include:
These four areas chosen for the scheme were selected as they are the parts of the city with the highest levels of multiple deprivation.
Councillor Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council and City Convener for Inclusive Economic Growth, said: “The Community Business Boosts offers young and growing businesses the chance to access funding which could make a critical difference to their development. This scheme supports the growth of businesses in these four areas of Glasgow, boosting economic growth and job opportunities for local people.”
