Vision Derbyshire Business Support scheme

In recognition of the economic impact the Covid-19 pandemic had across Derbyshire a new scheme has been launched to support those wanting to set up their own business in the county.

The Vision Derbyshire Business Start-Up and Business Support Grant Scheme' is open to people who live in Derbyshire who are starting their own business, or have recently set up a business in the last year.

A team of local expert business advisors are in place to offer free advice and support and funding of up to £10,000 per applicant is also available.

Networking opportunities and help in securing a wide range of services necessary to help entrepreneurs turn their venture into a success are also part of the support package on offer.

The scheme is particularly interested in helping entrepreneurs and those aged between 17 and 30, or who are aged over 50 and who lost their jobs or livelihoods during COVID.

Vision Derbyshire is a collaboration of local authorities across Derbyshire which delivers priority projects which have a positive impact on people's lives and achieve greater council efficiency. A funding pot of £550,000, which has been raised through Derbyshire's involvement in the Government's Retained Business Rates Pilot scheme, has been set aside to fund companies, with a range of grants available over the next two years.

To find out more about the Vision Derbyshire scheme and request support please email with a brief description of your business venture, its current status and your contact details (name, address, email) and a business advisor will be in touch. Your personal information will only be used for the purposes of providing advice and support through the Business Start-Up and Business Support Grant Scheme.
