Grants for Business Investment Fund
The £8million Grant for Business Investment (GBI) programme supports the start-up, expansion, modernisation and diversification of high growth, innovative, knowledge-base businesses – typically through supporting the acquisition of key assets such as buildings, plant and machinery – thereby creating jobs, increasing business productivity and raising skills levels.
The majority of jobs created within GBI are expected to be at NVQ Level 2 and above and to have salaries in excess of £20,000pa.
The current GBI Programme has already created and safeguarded 303 jobs within Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. GBI is currently supporting many more local businesses and is set to create and safeguard almost 600 jobs during the lifetime of the Convergence Programme.
