Local grants for Birmingham and The Marches regions

We are just taking another look this week at Grant’s, as it really is worth businesses checking them out this year.

Last week we talked about Growth Hubsof which there are 38 in England. This week we are looking locally at Birmingham and The Marches regions: 

Grants support is available from the Funding Round 22 of the £23.5m Business Growth Programme 2. The stipulation for applying is that you must have been trading for over 6 months. The deadline for submission of your application is Wednesday 23 December 2020. 

The areas included are: 

  • Birmingham, Solihull, Bromsgrove, Cannock Chase, East Staffordshire, Lichfield, Redditch, Tamworth, Wyre Forest 
  • The Marches: Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, Herefordshire 

A BGP2 grant is offered on the basis of a company creating new jobs within 7 months of improvements being made to production, processes and systems – which means you could use the grants to transition to remote working. 

Do feel you can talk to us about Microsoft Dynamics 365, and applying for a grant to part-fund it. We are here to help. 

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a leading CRM and ERP platform consisting of scalable software, suitable for the small business through to global enterprise. It provides a complete business management tool for every organisation.   

Inturi champions, and partners Microsoft Dynamics 365 because: 

  • D365 is highly flexible  
  • D365 is highly configurable 
  • D365 is scalable 
  • D365 is compatible with legacy systems 


Business Growth Programme 2 – Greater Birmingham & Solihull 

Grant support for growth businesses trading over 6 months: 

  • For existing B2B SMEs, based in The Greater Birmingham and Solihull or The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership areas, grants of £10,000 to £1,000,000 are available. 



A BGP2 grant is offered on the basis of a company creating new jobs within 7 months of improvements being made to production, processes and systems. 

  • Are you an SME actively trading for 6 months or more? (The definition of an SME is that your business has between 1 and 249 employees, either an annual turnover of less than £35.5m, and/or a balance sheet of less than £30.5m and be less than 25% owned by another company or combination of other companies.) 
  • Do you operate largely on a Business-to-Business basis? (Business to Consumer trading cannot account for more than 20% of turnover.)

We have been working with Clare Kay, CEO of Inturi, for many years. We find communication is easy with Clare as she can explain things that are highly technical in a clear and concise way.
Nikki Riddle - Marketing Manager
The Licences I have presently are at manageable costs and I know I can scale up over the years by buying more. The advice I have had from Inturi has been invaluable and I will consult further with them as my business scales.

Cowry Solutions - Nigel Ridpath
Close contact with the development team, listening to their explanations, meant that I acquired a deeper understanding of the platform and was thus able to help my employees move seamlessly from the old to the new Dynamics 365 CRM. My team took to it immediately and the feedback from them was duly fed back to Inturi, who used it to further enhance the user experience.
