Voucher scheme vouchers range from £1000 to £5,000 and need to be matched by funding from the business. The scheme offers funding of 40%, up to a maximum of £5,000, towards the total value of an investment with the balance of 60% funded by the business.
Prior to the lauch of the voucher scheme the Digital Enterprise team ran a pilot voucher project which ran between October and December generated a lot of interest from suppliers and small firms. The aim of the pilot was to help us test our processes and the demand for our Voucher offer.
The great news to report back is that we received some very good feedback from small businesses and suppliers about the scheme, with 22 firms submitting an application. Their newly recruited team are now processing those voucher applications and have begun to feedback to the applicants.
The pilot scheme has provided us with some invaluable intelligence which we are using to refine and target the main programme.
