Investment Innovation Fund

The Investment Innovation Fund was a pilot programme which was run across 31 Local Enterprise Office in 2018. We were proud and delighted to be selected as the training and mentoring providers for the Mid-West Region. It was an honour to work with Irish companies with such potential. The fund was available to Local Enterprise Office Clients who required a short term investment to implement their innovation plans. The programme included one to one mentoring and training to assist the companies to get “Investor Ready”. At the conclusion of the programme the companies made a formal pitch to an Investor Panel to potentially secure a LEO Grant investment of €25K to fund their innovation.
