Developing and launching a new product or service is rarely an easy and quick exercise. The journey normally involves many twists, turns and challenges – both technical and commercial. Funding is usually required to help address these challenges and could come from a variety of sources – but it can be a daunting exercise to understand and obtain.
In these two linked Innovation Briefings we will highlight some of the main sources of funding for innovation projects in SMEs and then examine what makes for a successful application. Each session will last approximately one hour and there will be an opportunity for Q&A.
Session 1 will identify some of the main funding providers and their programmes, including a detailed look at one or two key schemes.
In Session 2 we will consider key concepts that underpin all innovation projects and if addressed properly in your application - should significantly improve your chances of success.
You are welcome to attend either session – but ideally both!
