Unlock funding with our Advanced Advisory Service

Our Advanced Advisory Service can unlock funding to help your business grow and become more productive.

One of the biggest obstacles to growing your business can be accessing the right type of investment.

That’s especially true for small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) when it comes to funding development and innovation activity.

This is because unless you’ve got a track record, or an established partner, it can be hard to get backing for the development of a new product, service or process.

That’s where BIG Productivity’s Advanced Advisory Service can help. Our team of experts have experience in identifying grants and other forms of funding and support to help Cornish businesses gain a competitive advantage in their target markets.

We work with partners across industry, local and national governments, and the EU to identify potential funding from a few thousand pounds to over £10m.

The process starts by identifying the needs of your business. We provide you with a dedicated consultant who has experience in your sector and can work with you to identify and help solve your business challenges.

We can create new relationships and potential consortiums. We have strong links across the UK with many universities and research and technology organisations. We’ll work to identify appropriate funding, which may be from more than one source (‘package funding’).

Importantly we can help you understand the needs of the funding providers, including any grant scheme’s scope and intended outputs and outcomes. We contact the funders and carry out research to help prepare attractive bids that represent value for money.

The best part is that this service is fully funded, so it is entirely free. 

If you are a Cornish SME and want to know more about our Advanced Advisory Service simply contact the BIG Productivity team and we’ll set up a meeting with you to establish eligibility and how your company could benefit. You can email us at BIGTeam@cornwall.gov.uk or call 01872 322368.

Advanced Advisory Service is part of BIG Productivity, the £3.15m investment programme for small and medium businesses operating in Cornwall. BIG Productivity is financed by the European Regional Development Fund and delivered by Cornwall Council.
