The aim of the Early Stage Growth Grant is to improve the survivability of early stage businesses in West Dunbartonshire. The fund has been developed as part of a package of activities for businesses through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

The grant will provide 50% up to a maximum of £1,500 to support new businesses with the higher start-up costs associated with operating from commercial premises and/or with the costs associated with the employment of full time employees. It also aims to encourage new start businesses to become more sustainable helping them to grow more quickly.

A business or individual is limited to one successful application to this fund.
