If you are looking to make a capital investment in your business you may be eligible for a grant towards 20% of your project thanks to the new Signpost 2 Grants programme.

Created by the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEP, Signpost 2 Grants has been designed to support the growth of its local businesses, offering grants of between £2,000 and £20,000 to support capital investment projects.

To apply for the grant you must be:

  • Located within the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough area (Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Rutland, West Norfolk, West Suffolk, North Hertfordshire, South Holland, South Kesteven or Uttlesford)
  • Be a micro or SME that employs less than 250 people
  • Seeking to make a capital investment in your business, for example by purchasing new equipment or investing in your premises
  • Planning to grow and employ more staff in the future. As a guide, for every £10,000 grant awarded we would expect to see at least one new job created

Please note: Grants can only be issued against items that have not already been purchased or ordered.
