New Kent & Medway Business Fund - open for expressions of interest

New business funding programme for 2017 - Kent & Medway Business Fund

In January 2017 the Kent & Medway Business Fund (KMBF) was launched, administered by Kent County Council.  This scheme, offering interest-free loans or equity of between £50,000 to £500,000 for SMEs looking to grow and create new jobs, is the successor to the previous Regional Growth Funding schemes (Escalate, Expansion East Kent, Marsh Million, Small Business Boost and TIGER - see Finance), which are now closed to new applicants. All loan repayments from these schemes will be recycled into the new funding scheme.

The fund is open NOW to receive expressions of interest: there will be a call for applications in June followed by further calls during 2017-18.  To sign up for direct notifications of future calls for proposals, and for further information, please visit the KMBF website.
