Got an idea for a way to improve your business performance, but need help getting it off the ground? We offer a rolling programme of grants for up to 80% of eligible costs (maximum grants are £3,000), per business. We’re hoping that in Cultivator phase 2 we’ll be able to continue helping businesses grow through this popular and successful scheme.
Led by our partner Real Ideas Organisation (RIO), as part of their Brave Recruitment programme these labs are a chance for you to get a fresh perspective on your working practice. By bringing new voices and insights into the mix, they’ll help seed new ideas around anything you’re working on, from your marketing strategies to services and products.
Coaching, advice, support and funding. We work together with graduate start-ups to identify ambitions and turn them into a reality.
Opening up new potential markets, both abroad and closer to home. Delivered through a series of workshops, you’ll learn whether your business is ‘export ready’ and work with experienced trade advisors to put together an export action plan. Once you have completed the workshop series you will be eligible for a one-off export development grant.
In partnership with the University of Plymouth, we shine the spotlight on Cornwall’s best and brightest. We’ve taken Cornish musicians to the Great Escape Festival, makers and designers to the London Design Fair and filmmakers to the Celtic Media Festival.
