Hi, Not sure which forum to post this in, but I've been emailed recently by a company saying they offer grants from MBBO (Moving British Business Online). I made an application and was then told I'd been awarded 70% funding, however I was then referred to a nominated company called Blue Tech Media.
I've spoken to them, they are offering web site creation and SEO packages. I'm now waiting for a quote for m y 30% stake in this. I'm just curious if anyone else has come across either of these companies in the UK?

hey Paul, stay clear of this company.
I just registered with Nikonians here to see what u had to say. I too am a pro photographer based in London; I received the same email and was also accepted and wait for it, also given the contact details of Bluetech bla bla bla. They are not listed on any FFX directory for the creative industry which is not good. I did call them and they sounded totally unprofessional, I asked for their VAT number and the guy hung up on me. I have now checked through the .GOV grants department and they say this company are just plugging their own company.
