Find out how to benefit Enterprise Ireland's Competitive Start Fund

The RDC in DKIT are hosting a special masterclass workshop to assist businesses seeking up to €50,000 of equity investment.

Enterprise Ireland's Competitive Start Fund aims to accelerate the growth of start-up companies that have the capability to become High Potential Start-Up (HPSU) Companies (those with the potential to develop an innovative product or service for sale on international markets, create 10 jobs and achieve €1m in sales within 3 to 4 years of starting up).

The fund is designed to enable those companies reach key commercial and technical milestones, for example:

·       Evaluate overseas market opportunities and reach firm conclusions regarding the viability of the proposed business.

·       Build a prototype.

·       Secure a reference site.

·       Develop a market entry plan for exploiting international opportunities.

·       Secure partnership deal or strategic alliance.

·       Identify suitable channels to international markets.

·       Secure third party investment e.g. business angel, Venture Capital.
