We are proud to be the delivery agent for this programme, 8 years in we have worked with some fantastic entrepreneurs.
Twenty of Northern Ireland’s highest potential start-up businesses have been selected to participate in the second phase of the highly sought after Invest Northern Ireland Propel Programme and helped it reach a significant milestone of over £18m secured investment for current and past participants.
The programme, which is designed to fast-track export focused business ideas with high growth potential, has now assisted over 140 companies over the past five years and latest figures show that as well as the funding milestone, it has helped create over 430 jobs so far.
