European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)

YTKO continues to work with the European Commission in the delivery of their European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in the provision of our Outset start-up services and our GetSet for Growth business scale-up services.

Through the European Regional Development Fund, we have been able to provide entrepreneurs with the skills, know-how and coaching required to start-up their ventures through Outset.

Through GetSet For Growth, we offer growth-oriented firms a unique package of investment readiness and capacity development support integrated with access to various sources of finance.

We have provided support, funding by ERDF, to businesses in the Heart of the South West (Torbay and Plymouth), the West of England (Bristol, Gloucester, Worcester), Solent (Southampton and Portsmouth), Herefordshire (Luton, Harlow and Stevenage), Black Country, Greater Birmingham and Solihull.

Following our support, businesses were ready to grow sales, sometimes supported by them gaining investment, leading to company growth, adding and safeguarding jobs.
