Get up to £3,000 of Funding for New Digital Projects before March 2020

Published on November 26, 2019 by Rosie Baker

It’s getting towards the end of the year now, and attention starts turning to 2020. As we start the next decade, this is a fantastic time to push on to bigger and brighter heights; perhaps even time to take business a little more international.

That sounds daunting and costly, but luckily enough there is something to help you get started.

The Department for International Trade in the East of England have a fantastic programme designed to help ambitious SMEs who want to grow and unlock the appeal to international markets – which is surprisingly easy online.

This is made possible by money from the European Regional Development Fund, which is a project from the EU to help invest in services, infrastructure, and more across the Bloc.

The current run of funding ends in March 2020, which means there is still opportunity to make the most of it.

The grant can be used to cover some of the costs for a number of different digital services, including Search Engine Optimisation and Digital Marketing Campaigns with us at Footprint. The grants available are for 1-3 month projects and are split 50/50 between the fund and you, covering up to £3,000.

So, you can get between £2,000 to £6,000 of digital services from us and get half of that back if your application is successful once your project is completed.

Approval has to be given by 31st March 2020, so don’t wait too long to get your application in – this could make a big difference for you.

We work with many clients who have successfully received this funding from the DIT and now is the right time to start the process ahead of the new year.
