Enterprise Ireland has created a €200,000 pilot competitive feasibility fund to stimulate start-ups in the south-east.
A new company can receive up to €25,000 if it can demonstrate its job-creating potential in the region.
It appears that only those companies involved in ICT, manufacturing and food are eligible to apply, however.
Enterprise Ireland says the fund aims to accelerate the growth of start-up companies that can clearly demonstrate an ability to be successful in global markets.
As with all such potential funding, many hours of hard work and form filling will be required to successfully access this new financial support. Initiatives such as these, however, are welcome and play an important role in helping to generate jobs.
The closing date for applications is January 30th and the first awards are expected to be made available soon after that.
