Do you have growth aspirations for your business but need help to unlock its true potential? If the answer is yes, then you may want to consider the Propel 2 Grow programme.

What is the Propel 2 Grow programme?

Propel 2 Grow is delivered by Vedas Recruitment & Training Ltd, who have extensive experience in delivering business support programmes in Lancashire.

Propel 2 Grow works with each company to develop a unique solution enabling them to achieve their growth aspirations

How much funding will I be entitled to?

Up to 50% EU funded support is available for ambitious, growth ready Lancashire start-ups through to more well-established Lancashire SMEs

What can the funding be used for?

Propel 2 Grow provides access to a range of seminar and peer-to- peer networking events and can fit together with other Boost programmes to support the growth of your business.

The programme also gives you access to tools, techniques, people and processes to support you on your path to success. The range of services available include:

  • Business Strategy
  • Leadership Management
  • People Skills / Talent Management
  • Operational Management
  • Sustainability
  • Creativity & Innovation
  • Marketing & Sales

Working with a dedicated Key Account Manager and Sector Specialist Consultant, you will gain insights into what makes your staff tick, identify opportunities for business growth and any sticking points that may be slowing down the achievement of your growth objectives.

Who is eligible for the funding?

To be eligible for funded support you must be ambitious and ready to grow, and fit the following criteria:

  • Be a Lancashire-based business registered in the UK and based in England
  • Employ fewer than 250 full-time employees
  • Have a turnover of less than £40 million

As the programme is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, you must not be a retailer or business-to- consumer focused organisation.

How does it work?

Propel 2 Grow consists of two phases: Phase 1 is Research & Diagnostic and Phase 2 is Intensive Growth Support.

Phase 1 provides all the insight and intelligence to enable you to choose your bespoke Intensive Growth Support, which will be delivered in Phase 2. If you already know what type of consultancy support you need, you can choose to embark on the second phase only.

Phase 1 is completely free of charge and Phase 2 attracts up to 50% ERDF funding.
