February and March and the run-up to Easter are key times tourism businesses to get up and running and ready for the main season across the Southwest. SWIG is especially keen to hear from businesses from this sector that may be looking to apply for funding to grow or develop exciting projects. We are also looking for startups in this area so we can give them the kick start they need before the season starts.
John Peters, Managing Director of SWIG explains: “It is often a myth that we cannot assist tourism businesses, when in fact we can. Whether you are a service to tourism, run activities, or have to adjust seasonally because of tourism then it is worth getting in touch to see if you are eligible for our funds. The Southwest’s main industry and the economy is based on tourism and therefore our funds are designed to assist”.
