The grant is delivered through Business Gateway, Dundee and has been designed to encourage those who want to start their own business to take the next step and formalise their business ideas.
Support is available to a maximum of £2,250 or 20% of the overall cost of any project that will result in the creation of a new business which creates at least one new full time job within the city.
