We have received a large number of high-quality applications which put forward strong evidence for significant growth and would like to thank everyone for their interest and for taking the time to apply for the programme. If you submitted an application – thank you! We look forward to reading your submission. Applicants will be contacted individually to let them know if they have been successful.

If you would like to be kept up-do-date with the latest on the Somerset Catalyst programme and be the first to know when applications are open for next year, please register your interest at hello@somersetcatalyst.co.uk.

For information on other business support that is available to you beyond the Somerset Catalyst programme, you can visit your local District Council’s website (for example South Somerset District CouncilMendip District CouncilSedgemoor District Council and Taunton & West Somerset District Council).

You can also access information on business support from your local growth hub, for example the Heart of the South West Growth Hub or the West of England Growth Hub. A full list of England’s Growth Hubs can be found here. The network of 38 Growth Hubs are local public/private sector partnerships led by the Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs). They join up national and local business support so it is easy for businesses to find the help they need.

Once again, thank you very much for showing so much interest for our programme and good luck!
