It is recommended that you make contact with an executive of the LEO prior to the closing date in order to discuss any queries you may have.

Applying for funding

Before making an application for financial support you will be required to prepare a business plan. This helps the Evaluation committee and LEO understand your business idea and how the business will operate.  It is also important that you meet the eligibility criteria required. For example the enterprise must be in the added-value manufacturing or services with the potential to trade internationally sectors.
