Derby’s Enterprise Growth Fund was made available December 2012, to support business growth and job creation in the Derby area. Having secured £40m of the Regional Growth Fund to grow enterprise and jobs, £20m was made available exclusively for Derby businesses. The Enterprise Growth Fund created multiple jobs last year in the Derby and Derby travel-to-work area, and has vowed to continue its funding in 2014.
We are now starting to see firsthand the influence the fund is having on businesses close to us, and we are delighted that one of clients, Patterns (Derby) Limited, has recently been awarded a substantial grant from the scheme. The grant will allow Patterns to purchase a machine which will help with production, as well as a new van.
Steve Smith, Director of Patterns said: “Derby’s Enterprise Growth Fund has allowed the business to purchase new machinery which will increase production, as well as a new van. The support from DEGF is invaluable, and I would recommend all businesses enquire into the funding – it’s definitely worthwhile”.
