South West Growth Fund

A £8.7 million growth fund has been set up to help create 1,000 new jobs in the South West and support the region's most ambitious businesses.

Grants of up to £1m are now available to high growth businesses across the region.

Supported by the Regional Growth Fund, the South West Growth Fund was secured by Plymouth University's GAIN team, SWMAS Ltd, South West Water Business Services and the Western Morning News.

It will support transformational projects in businesses, primarily in manufacturing, marine and digital industries and is set to unlock £22m in private investment.

Successful businesses will also receive free water and energy audits provided by South West Water Business Services as a continuation of their mission to help regional businesses be more efficient.

The South West Growth Fund is the latest round of RGF funding to have been secured for the South West by GAIN and regional partners.
