Salesforce partners with Enterprise Nation to offer grants to UK Small Businesses

Updated: Jun 30, 2020

We’ve always been proud to be partners of the creators of the world’s number one CRM system. Time and time again, Salesforce has consistently supported causes like environmental sustainability, gender equality, LGBTQ+ rights, and charities all over the world. But it’s during these especially challenging times that we’re becoming even more proud to work with them, especially when they do amazing things like give small businesses a helping hand through the COVID-19 outbreak.

As part of their commitment to small businesses and giving back to the community, Salesforce has partnered with Enterprise Nation to offer eligible small businesses the opportunity to receive a £5,000 grant to help them through this tough period. This is really going to help small businesses adapt their business to new ways of working and get back to doing what they love.

So how does it work? Well, the funding will be administered by Enterprise Nation through a selection process. So after you apply, if you’re shortlisted, you’ll be asked to send in a video to introduce them to your business, detailing things like how you’ve been affected by the pandemic, and how securing the grant will help you.

If you’re a small business of 2-50 employees and want to check if you’re eligible for this scheme, we want to point you in the right direction. So here’s the page you need to visit to check and apply.

Be aware that applications will open in six regional phases based on location. For example, if you’re in Northern Ireland, you can apply right now, and England, Wales, and Scotland will shortly follow. So keep an eye out or sign-up for notifications on when you can apply. When your region is open for entries, head to the page and login or sign-up for a free Enterprise Nation account to start your application.

Also, it’s worth mentioning that as part of their Salesforce Care initiative, Salesforce has said they want to make it easier for you to help and support your customers remotely, which is why they’re offering free Salesforce Essentials, an out-of-the-box customer relationship management (CRM) tool for small businesses, and Tableau, the tool to help organizations make data-driven decisions – all for absolutely nothing.
