£2m Green Entrepreneurs Fund to be Launched in Derbyshire

Companies in Derbyshire will soon be able to apply for grants from a new £2m funding pot, Green Entrepreneurs Fund, to help them reduce their carbon footprint, retrain in low-carbon skills, and develop low-carbon schemes.

The fund, created in collaboration with the University of Derby, will be open to Derbyshire-based SMEs employing up to 250 staff and micro-businesses with up to 10 staff.

Derbyshire County Council will introduce the Fund at an information session hosted by the Chamber on Thursday 17 March from 9am to 10am.
