N2 Business Growth Fund


Businesses in Ashfield and Mansfield are being encouraged to act fast and apply to a £multi-million pot of funding set up to create long-term sustainable jobs.

The ‘N2 Business Growth Programme’ will offer grants ranging from £20k to £250k to businesses. The money will be available for businesses seeking to grow via capital investment in equipment or infrastructure, exploitation of intellectual property and new technologies.

Grants to fulfil growth potential

The funding has been awarded from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund to provide grants to help businesses in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire fulfil their growth potential and to drive the creation of new private sector jobs in the county.

The programme will be delivered by East Midlands Business Ltd (EMB), overseen by The University of Nottingham. Applications will be considered from businesses in all industries, but there will be a focus on key sectors which have been identified as being vital to the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire economies, including life sciences, digital content, clean technologies and advanced manufacturing.

The ‘N2 Business Growth Programme’ builds on the success of the two previous RGF Programmes – the Nottingham Technology Grant Fund (N’Tech), managed by Nottingham City Council, and Unlocking Investment for Growth, which was delivered by EMB on behalf of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.

Businesses are invited to register their interest in the N2 Business Growth Programme by visiting, or by emailing

If your business is looking to expand, there are numerous grants available which could help in this expansion, details are available on our grants page.
