Salesforce Offers Grants to Ease COVID-19 Pressures on Small Businesses

Forming part of a pledge Salesforce has made to small businesses and giving back to the community, the company is partnering with Enterprise Nation to offer grants to eligible companies, helping them through the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The Salesforce Small Business Grants Programme aims to help firms that are suffering from the effects of the current restrictions placed upon business and the general population as a result of the pandemic.

The programme will distribute a total of £670,000 in the form of 134 individual grants of £5,000 for each supported business.

They must not have not received any other cash grant during 2020 in relation to COVID-19 from any Government. The business must have a British bank account.

Applications will open in six regional phases. Each region will have seven days to apply. Application periods are as follows:
