To offer a fully comprehensive range of supports to small businesses, provision must be made to cater for specialist and customised support to meet client needs.
We make available the following forms of technical assistance:
- Specialist Training Assistance – (subject to qualifying limits) where a promoter may need to access specific training - in particular to establish appropriate records or management information systems - where FAS and/or other State assistance is not available
- Trade Fairs Assistance – (subject to qualifying limits) to enable small producers to attend and/or exhibit at trade fairs to market their goods and services outside of the County. The Board will also consider support to business networks in hosting business conferences/seminars for their members
- Market Visits – (subject to qualifying limits) to enable promoters to travel abroad specifically for the purpose of making contact with new customers and/or suppliers, in particular within the Euro zone
eCommerce Grants (subject to qualifying limits) – to enable promoters to initiate and enhance their ebusiness capability. The grant specifically excludes the development of ‘brochure-ware’ only on websites, but can include for example, the costs of adding an online purchasing facility
