Go-Create Grants are available to eligible Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) under the De Minimis State Aid scheme with a minimum 2:1 co-investment requirement by the applicant business.
We offer a free workshop to potential applicants prior to the deadline for each round so that they may find out more about eligible projects and how to apply. We cover:
- Eligibility requirements
