What happens now?
This shortlist has now been sent off to our panel of independent judges, who will make their decision on the winner in the coming days.
In deciding the winner for the Small Business Grants competition, judges consider four factors: Turnover growth/other measures of performance (for example, customer acquisition, market penetration) Innovation, Partnerships forged/Projects completed, and the extent to which a £5,000 cash boost would help the company in context with its size and growth aspirations.
For more information on the process, please visit our FAQ page here. You can also see a complete list of our judges on the homepage.
