Greg helps launch new business loan fund in West Kent

Greg helped launch a new £5.5million fund called Escalate to support new investment and new jobs along the A21 corridor.

Greg commented:

"This is a great boost for business in West Kent which will bring new jobs and new private investment to the area.

"Business finance is still a big issue for many companies that want to expand and the £5m Escalate loan fund provides a new source of funding for ambitious firms in West Kent that really want to grow and take more people on.

"I am delighted that the Government's Regional Growth Fund has been able to support the Escalate scheme and help kick-start new business growth in Tunbridge Wells and beyond."
