eEuropean Regional Development Fund (ERDF) help small business reach their full potential

As we hurtle ever closer to the official end of summer and the forthcoming autumnal season, it might brighten your day to know that we are currently offering a DOUBLE WHAMMY offer for your business – a brand-new, bespoke website with ongoing support from the Holly Small Design team, plus details of how you can get up to £4,000 in grant money if you’re a small business or start-up – YES REALLY! Sound too good to be true? We promise it’s not. Read on!

What is EDRF?

The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is lending early stage small businesses (no more than 3 years old) and start-ups (no more than 6 months old) based within Hertfordshire, a helping hand through its grant application process.

How does my business/start up sign up?

The good news is there is no fee for joining the ERDF-funded programme, and for ease we have listed some of the key points you need to consider below:

  • All businesses must be signed up to be part of the ERDF-funded Hertfordshire Start-Up Programme if wishing to apply for funding.
  • Every business must been registered with either Companies House or HMRC (evidence/paperworkwill be needed).
  • The grant can only be used for costsassociated with business activities that help and support engagement and early growth e.g. marketing, PR, website, software and legal/admin costs.
  • There can only be one application PER business.

Show me the money!

If your business is fairly fledging i.e. not more than six months old, you can apply for a grant of up to £1,000. The grant will need to be ‘matched funded’ by you, so you put down a thousand pounds and so does ERDF, leaving £2,000 to play with. If you’re a more established early stage business, you can apply for a grant of up to £3,000.

For further information about the ERDF programme and to request an application form, please get in touch with:

Mick Dobson of Wenta Watford Centre via email at: or call 01923 247 373.
