The Welsh Government has launched the Town Centre Entrepreneurship Fund as a pilot programme to provide financial assistance for entrepreneurs and businesses who are looking to start and grow a business in one of four town centres across North Wales – Bangor, Colwyn Bay, Rhyl and Wrexham. 

This fund will be available as a discretionary grant of between £2,500 – £10,000 per business to support with the revenue costs associated with starting up in or relocating to a town centre. 

In order to access the fund, you must submit an Expression of Interest form (available to download below) and register with Business Wales. You will then be assigned a dedicated Business Adviser who will support and guide you through the full application process. 

The Business Wales Town Centre Entrepreneurship Fund is open to applications until 20 June 2022, funds permitting.  If funds are used up before this date the scheme will close.
