Introducing the Amber Valley Accelerator

Amber Valley Accelerator is a brand new business support project designed to help businesses across the district to sustain, grow and innovate, with an additional focus on decarbonisation. The project supports businesses at all stages of development.

The project which runs until 31 March 2025 is led by the East Midlands Chamber and is funded by the Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF).

What support can I access?

Working with an experienced business adviser, eligible businesses can access a range of support including:

  • 1-2-1 advice, mentoring and diagnostic support on a range of areas relevant to your business. In addition to this, tailored support will be offered to businesses looking to invest in research and development.
  • Training and action planning workshops: providing you with the latest learning and tools in areas such as digital skills.
  • Growth vouchers: offering up to £2,000 (100% funded) for specialist consultancy and training (linked to the strategic plan developed with your business adviser. Available on a first-come, first-served basis).
  • Help to Grow - Management course: £750 joining fee subsidy for this 12-week executive development leadership and management programme (together with the Government’s 90% support, this covers 100% of the costs).
  • Grant funding: helping you identify and apply for funding to help you grow, increase efficiencies and build a sustainable business for the future.
  • Networking and peer support: for example, through the East Midlands Manufacturing Network.
  • Energy saving and improvement audits providing you with a full asset register and an action plan on how to save costs.
