We are thrilled to formally announce that we were recently awarded funding by Firstport to cover initial set-up costs for the social enterprise side of our business.
After professional (and truly excellent) business advice through the Scottish Goverment-sponsored Just Enterprise programme, we were successful in our bid for £5000. This bid was made to support the cover of costs such as legal advice and financial systems set up. It has also provided help with marketing materials and relevant business insurances.
The funding came after a formal application process, followed by a pitch to the Awards Programme Manager. This then went to an awards panel for assessment. On our second attempt, the assessment was successful.
We are overwhelmed by the support shown by Firstport and fully intend this to be the capital injection that launches the business. With this, we aim to achieve a purpose built facility within 3 years.
Thank you again Firstport!
