Companies that work together to address these issues can often be more successful and profitable.
The Collaborative Growth Programme is now offering 100 per cent funding up to £25,000 to SME-led networks requiring facilitation support to scope out innovative collaborative projects with the potential to increase business competitiveness.
Networks wishing to make an application to the programme must consist of a minimum of 4 Northern Ireland SMEs. At least one of the participating companies must be an Invest Northern Ireland customer and be prepared to make the application on behalf of the group.
The Collaborative Growth Programme call for applications has now closed.
There are significant benefits to participants in the Collaborative Growth Programme and these include:
Depending on the outcome of the scoping study, additional funding (up to a maximum of £170,000) is available to support the implementation of phase two of the collaborative project.
More information on the Programme, together with a blank sample application form, guidance notes and a range of helpful templates and support documents can be found in our Collaborative Growth Programme toolkit.
