FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

MBL Solutions have helped many businesses across the North East to secure business funding.

NBSL FUNDING

NBSL have enabled thousands of North East businesses to expand and grow by providing small business grants with free advice and guidance for start-ups and people trying to improve their business. Northumberland Business Service Ltd (NBSL) is an enterprise agency which operates across the North East providing business support funding for business improvement projects across the region. They can cover up to 40% of the cost of a project or provide £1400 of funding for projects aimed at improving and growing a business.

GROW & DEVELOP YOUR BUSINESS

NBSL fund support programmes which provide SMEs with the opportunity to bring in external expertise for advice and guidance (such as an external agency like MBL Solutions) to help with projects including:

  • Website Design and Development
  • SEO
  • Social Media
  • Professional Content
  • Marketing Plans
  • Process Improvement
  • Product Development
  • Expansion Planning
  • Management Coaching
  • HR Strategy


NBSL will give you a grant of up to £1400 towards a project worth £3500; you can use this grant for almost any type of business support that will help your business to grow including marketing and web design to financial or product development.

At MBL Solutions we have worked closely with NBSL and have helped a number of our clients apply and successfully receive funding for website, SEO and marketing projects.

REQUIREMENTS

To be eligible for funding you must be trading as a company. NBSL cannot support projects that have already started (or that have been completed).



THE APPLICATION PROCESS

The application process is relatively simple and is something MBL Solutions is able to help with. It is a 5 step process as follows:

Step 1: You’ll fill out a simple online application
Step 2: An NBSL advisor will arrange a visit with you
Step 3: You’ll chose MBL Solutions as your provider
Step 4: MBL Solutions will complete your project
Step 5: You’ll claim your funding and review the project

B2B OR B2C FUNDING?

The application process differs for businesses operating in a Business to Consumer (B2C) market and a Business to Business (B2B) market.

For B2C funding applications are received by NBSL and are reviewed at the start of every month by their panel.

For B2B funding the process is slightly simpler. Once applications are received, they are reviewed at the start of the process and approved or not approved.

Our business development team are experienced at helping businesses to get funding and grants for business growth and improvement projects. We can provide help and support throughout the application process prior to project commencement.
