Impact Assessment Report

The University of Derby's Invest to Grow programme provides loans and grants to businesses seeking to "take the next step" in their growth plans. This report looks in detail at where this money goes, how many jobs have been created and how the businesses and the wider economy have benefited.

 

“Invest to Grow has provided a great opportunity to access investment capital, which has propelled us forward in a way we would not have been able to do organically. This led to a significant increase in both our sales and profitability over the first year, with both increasing by double-figure percentages. The project has enabled us to diversify our offer and we are now working with a range of new clients.” David Campbell, Director at SureScreen Diagnostics Ltd
