Investment Funding

The Invest in the Heart of the South West Soft Landing

This is a unique grant fund to help companies recover the costs of an introductory visit to the area. Costs may include flights to the UK, travel within the UK, hotel accommodation, scoping reports and research and networking events and meetings during your visit.

This grant is available to UK and Overseas-owned SMEs (250 employees or fewer) from outside the South West, which are seriously considering relocation to the Heart of the South West of England. There are no strings attached, as we believe that a visit to the area, will demonstrate why the Heart of the South West is the destination of choice for growing companies.

One of the Heart of the South West Inward Investment Team would like to meet you during your visit, and can assist in the preparation of your visit programme.
