Dan welcomes support for entrepreneurs in North Thanet

Dan welcome new figures showing £500 million has been awarded to small businesses across the country, and am urging more entrepreneurs in Herne Bay and North Thanet to apply.

The new figures show that 73 loans have been awarded to start-ups in North Thanet, with firms receiving over £400,000 in support.

Since 2012, the Start Up Loans programme has issued nearly 65,000 loans to entrepreneurs and small businesses across the country, helping them to grow and create well-paying jobs in their local area.

As part of the Conservatives’ modern Industrial Strategy, entrepreneurs are being supporting to start up and businesses are supported to grow and reach their full potential.

Commenting, Dan said:

“It’s fantastic news that over £500 million has already been used to support smaller firms across the country, including here in Herne Bay and the North Thanet area.

“Now I’m urging more small and start up businesses here to apply for this support, which will help them to boost their productivity and create new jobs.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and through the modern Industrial Strategy and schemes like the Start Up Loans programme, this Government is determined to support them.”
