Read about The Brexit Tracker and how a £1,000 Growth Grant is helping Buckinghamshire SMEs assess how Brexit is impacting them.
£1,000 Growth Grants
The Brexit Tracker, founded by Ben Martin, allows businesses to assess how the multitude of issues that Brexit throws up are affecting them. A £1,000 Growth Grant available through our Growth Programme has helped Ben upgrade the tracker’s digital service and implement the Brexit Business Index.
Ben explains all: “The email regarding a 25% contribution to my firm’s R&D costs, sent by Buckinghamshire Business First, came at a very opportune time. I was assessing whether to upgrade the digital service available on The Brexit Tracker – and with the help of the Growth Programme team I quickly realised a proportion of my £4,600 digital web investment spend would qualify for a Growth Grant. The application was relatively easy to complete, with only a small number of forms to be filled in. The £1,000 grant quickly arrived in my business account.
“The digital upgrade has enabled The Brexit Tracker to provide a free to use, instant review service of how Brexit is impacting 30 UK business sectors, via the Brexit Business Index. This allows Buckinghamshire SMEs access to easy to digest data and information around how Brexit is impacting their firm and their suppliers and B2B customers.
“The grant was pivotal to allowing me to commit to the upgrade.”
