“Having a small business is not just about what you make or sell or service you offer. You have to be a photographer, web designer and social media expert nowadays! I struggled with this and the support offered by the Big House is invaluable. I have gained knowledge, contacts and confidence through this scheme and it’s also free so if I was you, I would get in touch with them and see how they can help. Thank you to The Big House and all the partner agencies for the fantastic work you do!”

Business Development Grants

Two Big House partners offer financial support for SMEs that are already trading. You will just need to provide a business case for the investment and either NTU or NBV will be able to guide you through the application process.
