Innovate Wicklow!

Local Enterprise Office Wicklow is delighted to announce the launch of Innovate Wicklow! a 6 week Business Innovation Support Programme.

The programme, designed for Wicklow based businesses, has been developed by Local Enterprise Office Wicklow in association DesignCORE, an established centre for innovation and commercialisation, at Institute of Technology Carlow and supported by Enterprise Ireland.  

This new programme, delivered by experienced Design Strategist, Lynne Whelan, and a team of specialist Mentors from DesignCORE, provides an opportunity for innovative Wicklow business owners, to re-assess their business and develop innovative strategies for adapting to market challenges and opportunities - whether that be new products, new processes or new approaches to markets and distribution channels.

The Innovate  Wicklow!  programme is based on Design Thinking, which is applied in a strategic,  practical and bespoke manner to your business. It is designed for established businesses (trading for at least 3 years+) with between 3 - 50 employees, based in Wicklow.

The programme will

  • bring participants through a defined 4 stage process
  • identify and analyse where the innovation potential lies in your enterprise and
  • develop a strategic road map – with steps to implementation, resources required, milestones and timelines -  which can underpin application for further supports to deliver on Innovation plans.
