You must not have a turnover of over £500,000 or have received over £50,000 in private grant funding in the past two years – this doesn’t include government grants.
In the event that you are the winner, you must accept and agree to at least one filming session for at least one promotional video that can be used and distributed at the discretion of Simply Business.
The closing date is September 17, 2021. The shortlist will be announced on October 4. The winner will be selected by an expert panel before being announced in October 20.
This is the second grant of its kind from Simply Business. Last year it gave away £10,000 to one small business owner to help their recovery from Covid-19. Larissa Cooper – owner of Rowan Bay in Norfolk, who creates and designs sustainable artisan baby wraps and slings – beat almost 15,000 small businesses from across the UK to win.
Alan Thomas, UK CEO at Simply Business, comments: “Small businesses are built on big dreams, and countless self-employed people have seen these dreams put to the test during this most challenging of periods. We want to make a genuinely transformational impact to a small business owner’s life – with a cash injection that can put someone’s big dream back on track. And from our research we know £25,000 will do just that.”
