Broader Deeper IDB Growth
This project was for 10 months (1 June 2010 – 31 March 2011) and provided continuity of the Broader Deeper IDB contract for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly which came to an end on 31 May 2010 following an extension to utilise existing under spend.
The previous Broader Deeper IDB contract, which incorporated both the Broader Deeper IDB project (Growth) and IYRE (Revenue) supported over 730 businesses and, of these, over 600 businesses received intensive assistance.
The continuation of the service took the form of three interlinked, but separate projects:
- The continuation of the Deeper Broader IDB (Growth) project
- The continuation of Improving Your Resource Efficiency (IYRE Revenue) and
- A new Improving Your Resource Efficiency project, IYRE Capital Grants.
The interim 10 month project provided information, diagnosis and brokerage to new and existing businesses with high growth potential in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
The aim of the project was to support 330 businesses (including 200 businesses intensively assisted) in order to increase productivity and growth through the deployment of dedicated business advisers in order to bring about improved performance at identified key stages in the business growth cycle (start up, VAT registration, business acquisitions and mergers, new products and processes, new markets and responding to changes in the economic environment).
