Business Investment Fund


Applications are CLOSED

Overview of the Business Investment Fund

Further funding was available as grants of between £5,000 and £24,999 to support the Oxfordshire business community at this critical time. £2.1m has already been given to Oxfordshire businesses to help them to harness opportunities and grow.

Details of the Business Investment Fund

£2.1 million has previously been made available to Oxfordshire businesses during our first round of Business Investment Fund allocations and new applications did not require match funding from interested businesses.

Applications for the Business Investment Fund are now CLOSED, as of 14 November 2022.

Adding more money to the Business Investment Fund is the latest action by OxLEP Business, recognising our commitment to supporting the Oxfordshire business community at this critical time.

Funding will be used by businesses to accelerate investment plans, rebuild operations and develop market opportunities as we emerge from the pandemic.

Recipients of the fund are expected to harness opportunities for technology adoption and innovation, as well as supporting a transition to net-zero.

As part of the grant process, we encouraged applicants to watch our two recordings; our launch event and guidance webinar.
