Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Enterprise Fund set to open
Wed, March 30, 2022
The latest round of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Enterprise Fund will open on Monday 4th April 2022.
The fund is aimed at supporting young businesses (less than two years old) to address barriers to growth through new and innovative approaches.
Since its launch in 2017, the Enterprise Fund has allocated over £250,000 to local businesses, which has helped them to innovate, upscale and expand their base outside local markets.
All types of businesses are eligible to apply, including but not limited to, manufacturing, services, hospitality, tourism, retail and construction.
The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Richard Holmes said: “Council’s Enterprise Fund has shown to have a hugely positive impact and I am very proud that we are continuing to support innovative entrepreneurs as they set out to achieve further success.
“These businesses are vital to generating further prosperity in our area, and this type of targeted funding will allow them to further grow and develop.
“Last year’s successful applicants offered a diverse range of products and services including luxury home fragrances, boat cruises, wheelie bin cleaning, physiotherapy, beauty, electric vehicle charging point installers and professional virtual assistant services so I’m looking forward to seeing what this year’s round will bring.”

The Enterprise Fund opens on Monday 4th April 2022 and closes on Friday 29th April 2022 at 12 noon.
