A BUSINESSWOMAN is urging small companies to take part in a Government funded growth scheme.

Worthing-based Lisa Farr, of Inspired Marketing, is a registered adviser for the Growth Vouchers scheme, which grants subsidies of up to £2,000 to spend on expert advice.

The match-funded initiative is open to businesses with less than 50 employees and self-employed individuals.

Mrs Farr said: “As an entrepreneur based in Sussex, I’m delighted to see Government investment specifically targeted at the small business sector.

“I’m a registered adviser and applying myself as it is a fantastic opportunity to gain expert, professional guidance for my business for only 50 per cent of the usual investment.

“In my experience, having specialist advice is extremely valuable as it can pay us back many times over in new business generated.”
