Dacorum's Den 2017
Dacorum’s Den – the business grant scheme based on the popular TV show – is back for 2017.
Now in its sixth year, it gives budding local entrepreneurs the chance to apply for up to £1,000 to grow and develop a business idea.
Organised by Dacorum Borough Council, and supported by local sponsors including Abode Bed, Gyron, Haspineall Collins, JE2 and McDonald’s, the scheme has awarded £50,000 to Dacorum businesses and created 33 jobs in the borough over the past five years.
Last year’s grant winners included Spirit of the Old Town, which offers historical costumed tours around Hemel Hempstead, and Sherry Hostler Cake Artistry, a new cake business opening in Tring.
All businesses that apply receive business support from our Enterprise and Investment Team.
How to get involved
Entry into this year's scheme is now closed. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to put their ideas before a panel of judges, led by Mike Penning MP, on 7 July 2017.
