A wealthy and healthy regional economy depends on innovative and
enterprising organisations and individuals with the aspiration to
succeed and to grow their business.
Key to the growth of any company is the ability to access the right
support at the right time. There is a wide range of programmes
to help businesses innovate and grow.
If you plan to research and develop new
products or services, you can get free information and advice and
may also be eligible to apply for financial support, in the form of
an R&D grant. These grants cover research and development of
new technologies and innovative products or processes.
A number of schemes exist, provided by a range of organisations,
to help companies innovate and grow. These include specialist
networks, dedicated facilities, skills development programmes and
Most business support is provided by the private sector.
However, the South West
RDA has worked with government to identify specific issues
where publicly-funded business support can complement this
provision. This support has been simplified to cover 7 key
areas as part of the ‘Solutions for Business’ portfolio. These
areas are: Starting up; Growing your business; Finance and grants;
Developing people; Environment & efficiency; Exploiting your
ideas; International trade. Visit the
South West RDA website for more information.
