Prime Minister David Cameron backs our Local Business Accelerators campaign

Have your say

The Grantham Journal, along with regional and local newspapers across the country has delivered a huge boost to UK business by pledging an unprecedented £15m of free advertising to the most dynamic fledgling enterprises - and Prime Minister David Cameron is backing the initiative.

The bold scheme, backed by Dragons’ Den judge, Deborah Meaden, is called Local Business Accelerators and is being spearheaded by the voice of local media, the Newspaper Society.

Nearly 500 local press publications, including the Grantham Journal are joining forces to promote the strength and value of local newspapers for local businesses and communities.

Together, the local press industry will search for the nation’s most promising young businesses and help them accelerate their success with top professional advice from local business mentors, plus a substantial allocation of free advertising space in their local publication.

Grantham deserves great businesses – and here’s your chance to grab a slice of this £15m Government-backed national initiative.

If YOUR business – and our campaign – catches the eye of national judges, you could have Dragons’ Den business guru Deborah Meaden on board to offer consultation and mentoring - for a year!
