1. What was the Small Business Grants initiative?
2. What businesses were eligible to enter?
Any UK small business that was actively trading was eligible to enter.
The businesses could be sole trader or limited company. We also considered not-for-profit organisations. As long they were set up and actively trading, the application was considered.
3. How did companies apply?
4. When did applicants find out if they won, and what happened if they won?
5. What happened to the data?
Applicants had to provide core business contact details and relevant profile information about their business.
The information was passed over to our judges and our selected partners who were working with SmallBusiness.co.uk to part fund the grant. the information was used to notify entrants of a successful application and confirm if they had won the grant for the month applied in. Additionally, applicants data remained on our mailing list so SmallBusiness.co.uk could keep them up to date about winners going forward, and any further opportunities for funding that the business could qualify for. Applicants could also be contacted by our selected partners about services relevant to their business.
6. How frequently could companies apply?
Applications could only be made every quarter. If an attempt to apply before three months had passed since the last submission, the entry was not be considered.
