There is a range of government grants available to small and new companies operating in Ireland. These grants can be acquired locally from the County Enterprise Boards, nationally from Enterprise Ireland and internationally from E.U. agencies.
Grants and supports are generally available to businesses recognised as having the potential for job creation and contributing to state revenue.
Local Grants such as:
• Priming Grants
• Business Expansion Grants
• Feasibility Grants
National Grants such as:
• HPSU Feasibility Study Grant
• Innovation Vouchers
• Innovation Partnerships
• Mentor Grants
• New Frontiers Entrepreneur Development Programme
• Trade Fair Participation Grant
• Job Creation Grants
To name but a few.
Each grant has specific qualification criteria, which businesses must meet to qualify for these grants. At Patrick Lane & Co. we can help you to point your company in the right direction that will hopefully lead to a successful grant application.
So if you are a new business start-up, small enterprise with growth potential or recognised as a high-potential start-up and interested in finding ways of securing funding to aid your business, please come along to our half-day seminar entitled “Getting Money from the Government” on Friday, May 25, at Bewleys Hotel in Leopardstown.
