Second UK Business Improvement District Invests in Idox’s GRANTfinder Service

Idox welcomes contract signing with second UK Business Improvement District (BID).

Manchester, United Kingdom, April 17, 2015 --( Ealing Broadway Business Improvement District is the second BID to sign up to Idox’s funding services.

The BID – a not for profit company comprising the local business community – offers assistance and support by developing and taking forward projects and services of benefit to the local trading environment.

GRANTfinder, Idox’s flagship funding service, will provide the BID with access to over 8,000 continually updated funding opportunities and the functionality to provide bespoke funding reports and bulletins for businesses looking to secure funding.

This latest investment follows Idox’s first BID contract for funding services in February 2015 which saw Mansfield BID make a three-year commitment to provide GRANTfinder to their local area.

Mansfield BID manager Sarah Nelson commented:

“We are the first BID in the country to use this system and are very excited that we can offer this service. Businesses in the town are already voicing positive opinions on how GRANTfinder will be of real benefit to Mansfield and its individuals.

“We look forward to working with people to access potential funding that generic internet searches just cannot provide.”
