Jarrolds Growth Fund

As part of our ongoing commitment to nurturing Norfolk’s business community, we are delighted to announce the launch of the Jarrolds Growth Fund. A pot of £100,000 will be released every year to Norfolk businesses looking to propel their growth. To further support those businesses in meeting their growth ambitions, we will provide access to specialist expertise both from within Jarrolds and from our associates.

Applications are open now and you can apply by completing this form by Friday 15th March. We will then review all applications and invite shortlisted businesses for an interview in April. Once we have decided on the recipients of the fund, we will get the paperwork drawn up and funds released.

Nick Steven-Jones and Tom Burdett, who will be deciding on the recipients of up to £100,000


Who can apply?

What are the selection criteria?
