An Eureka Moment

An Eureka Moment

The Eureka! Moment innovation and growth projects hopes to fill this gap, with grants of £2k – £10k available to implement projects identified at a review, or work with businesses to bring new products ideas into reality.

What is it?

Support is on offer to eligible businesses to realise their Eureka! Moment through:

  • Free business briefings and updates
  • Free one-to-one consultancy support to identify opportunities to be more innovative

This project aims to support businesses from Micro through to the larger SME’s within Shropshire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire. It has been identified that as a very rural area, with a large proportion of Micro businesses potential innovation/change projects are often smaller is size/cost and businesses are unable to benefit from some of the other innovation grants available regionally and nationally, where minimum grants are often £10,000. In addition a condition of these grants is the guarantee of additional jobs often in excess of one year. Other schemes demand that new products are almost market ready.
