Ealing Council launched the Ealing Pioneers’ Fund to provide innovation grants to local small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the borough. The fund, which was project managed by West London Business, totalled £1.217m of Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) funding. It was designed to deliver targeted innovation grants to businesses in Ealing that demonstrated a good prospect of accelerated growth and job creation with the support. The fund focussed on the following sectors: aviation/logistics, food, creative/media and retrofit/construction tech with a particular interest in low carbon and/or circular economy innovations. The initiative has contributed towards the development of the London West Innovation District.0
