4 02 COONEY CAREY Financial Supports for Business 02 ENTERPRISE IRELAND Enterprise Ireland s investment in its client companies is keenly focused on their potential to create jobs and to export. It offers a broad range of supports. These are focused on meeting their client companies needs at various stages of their development. Along with the supports listed below, it also offers their client companies other support, including mentoring and skills-based workshops for senior executives. Job Expansion Fund The competitive Job Expansion Fund helps Enterprise Ireland client companies to achieve enhanced growth by employing more people. The fund gives grants of up to 150,000 towards the recruitment of new employees. Enterprise Ireland accepts applications for funding on a specific callclose date. It awards funding on a competitive basis. The fund is open to small-to-medium-sized employers that: Have been trading for at least two years Employ 10 or more full-time staff Are involved in manufacturing and/or are a highgrowth potential traded services company.

5 COONEY CAREY Financial Supports for Business 03 Innovation Vouchers Enterprise Ireland developed the Innovation Voucher initiative to build links between Ireland s public knowledge providers (that is, higher education institutes and public research bodies) and small businesses. If you own or manage a small limited company and have a business opportunity or problem that you want to explore, you can apply for an Innovation Voucher. You can use the voucher to pay for research with one of the public knowledge providers. Eligible companies (see below) can get Innovation Vouchers worth 5,000. You can pool your voucher with up to 10 other companies to create a larger fund worth up to 50,000 to address an issue of common concern. The Innovation Vouchers initiative is open to all small companies with fewer than 50 employees. Registered knowledge providers in Northern Ireland also accept these vouchers as part of Enterprise Ireland s arrangement with Invest Northern Ireland. Submit an application form through the Enterprise Ireland Innovation Fund programme. Competitive Start Fund The Competitive Start Fund exists to accelerate the growth of start-up companies that could succeed in global markets. The fund is designed to enable those companies to reach key commercial and technical milestones. These could include: Evaluating overseas market opportunities and reaching firm conclusions about the viability of the proposed business Building a prototype Securing a reference site Developing a market entry plan to make the most of international opportunities Securing partnership deals or strategic alliances Identifying suitable channels to international markets Securing third-party investment, such as businessangel or venture-capital funding. The highest level of funding available is 50,000, for which the fund takes a 10% ordinary equity stake in the start-up company. The fund releases the investment in two equal tranches. The fund only releases the first tranche to successful applicants when they confirm they have secured an additional new cash investment for equity of 5,000. This new investment by the successful applicant happens after the relevant call-close date. Capitalising existing director or related party loans does not qualify as this new cash investment. The company must also meet the general terms and conditions of the scheme.
