Realising the remarkable

February 8th 2023

With a new £150,000 cash grant programme, Enterprise Nation and VistaPrint are helping budding entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and reach their full potential.

Help your business thrive
The UK’s small business community has had to overcome significant challenges these past few years. While the instinct during tough times is to prioritise survival, investing in growth instead can often lead to great success in the long term.

For this reason, Enterprise Nation and VistaPrint have joined forces to provide a cash grant programme worth £150,000 that will help budding entrepreneurs grow their ventures. The programme will see 20 small businesses from across the UK each win £7,500, alongside marketing and design support and expertise, to help their business thrive.

Who is the support for?

The fund will distribute £150,000 to small businesses in the UK to help them realise their business ambitions. Twenty small businesses will each receive £7,500, as well as:

A free subscription for 12 months to VistaCreate Pro, Vista’s graphic design software

£500 to spend on VistaPrint UK site

Access to 99designs by Vista silver logo and brand guide package

Am I eligible?

To be eligible to apply, your business must:

be based in the UK and have a UK business bank account

be a registered business or registered as self-employed with proof of UTR

have a workforce of no more than 10 employees

have been trading for at least three months

not be undergoing insolvency, examinership, receivership or any related or similar process, and

if requested, be willing to share its success story of how it used its cash grant (VistaPrint may use and/or publish these details further for various purposes such as marketing, advertising and PR)

Note: The cash grant is taxable and winners are responsible for covering the tax liability.

How do I apply?

Applications will open on 28 January 2023 and close at 23:59 on 26 February 2023. If your business meets the eligibility criteria, apply now.

40 applicants will be shortlisted and if selected, you will be contacted by email by 16 March 2023 to submit a two-minute pitch video explaining how you will use the grant.

What happens after I apply?

All applicants are required to fill out an eligibility form as part of the application. If you’re eligible, you can then continue with the application process.

Once you have completed all parts of the application, you will receive a confirmation email with the next steps.

The revision of applications will be made by a panel of judges. Judges decision will be final.
