can award funding of between £2,000 and £170,000 to start-ups and established businesses in the coast-to-capital area that meet the eligibility criteria. You can discover quickly if your business or start-up will be approved for an award by attending one of our free remote workshops that are held regularly through both WSX Enterprise and GetSetForGrowth. Over 90% of applications to the fund are successful.


To help you to understand the application process you can view our infographic and you can request an application form from our Grant Fund Manager (


The Invest4 Fund has been created to help new businesses to start-up, and to help growing businesses to grow more quickly. It is a match-fund meaning that, where a business agrees to pay (or raise capital) for 60% of their expenditure cost, the Invest4 Fund will agree to pay the 40% balance of that cost.


To field a strong Invest4 Grant application, you will need to include your business plan and we offer free, remote workshops to help you to develop a plan that is specifically geared towards gaining funding. You can book your free place on this workshop through The Business Hothouse Eventbrite Page. WSX Enterprise and Get Set For Growth offer workshops and intensive boot camps that will help you to fill out the Invest4 Grant application form to a high standard by taking you through the form line-by-line. They also offer business planning workshops.


If you would like to speak with a member of The Business Hothouse team, you can book a phone appointment with us via our Facebook Page and we will advise you on how The Business Hothouse can support your business or business idea.
