TALE Lite: Fast Grants for SMEs

A new fast turnaround grant has been introduced to fund consultants & software in small and medium businesses that use logistics.

Grants of £1,000 to £2,000, are now available with a simplified application form. 

The first new TALE Lite Grant was received by a Kent shipping company who received £1,620 towards Cyber Essentials Certification. 

Other uses have included Microsoft 365 Implementation, an Operations and Processes Review, Database Scoping (Customer Relationship Management), Strategy Consultancy and SAAS (Software As A Service) for Fleet Management, Tracking and Stock Control, from clients across manufacturing, transport and freight forwarding enterprises.

Larger TALE Grants are still available at £2k - £20k.  For larger awards the project will lead to a new product or service being launched.

TALE IS ERDF Funded: over £1M of Grants have been awarded.
