Free business grant for British entrepreneurs

The business grant is being launched to coincide with BT’s new Business Experience event, happening all next week in central London. Peter Jones, the serial entrepreneur and Dragons’ Den panellist, will be hosting a question and answer session on Tuesday as part of the event. You have to register to attend but the event is free, as is the chance to apply for the business grant.

Entries to the competition can be made either at BT Business Experience or online at To qualify for the business grant, you simply need to submit your business plan along with a breakdown of what the money will be spent on in your business.

A shortlist of finalists will be selected by a judging panel including BT Business managing director Bill Murphy, and a winner will be chosen based on the company that demonstrates the best ability to progress their business with the business grant.

The winning business will also be eligible for a complete free audit of their information technology and communications systems by BT Business experts.

Murphy says: “Small businesses are vital to the UK economy, particularly in the current climate – so we at BT Business feel it is vital to support this community by providing opportunities like this.

"The free, week-long BT Business Experience has been specifically created to show businesses how the very latest technology and business thinking can help them manage their costs, market their business more effectively and make them more competitive especially in the current environment. We are now also offering this business grant as an extra boost to this vital community.”

Any British entrepreneur with an idea for a new venture or an established business that needs a cash boost, be it to launch a new product or service or expand into a new market, could benefit from this substantial business grant.
