FINAL CALL FOR 'NEW FRONTIERS' PROGRAMME
FINAL CALL for people interested in submitting an Application Form for our 'New Frontiers' Programme.
Deadline for applications is TUESDAY 20TH MARCH @ 5PM.
New Frontiers - a National Programme supported by Enterprise Ireland and being run by the Innovation in Business Centres (IiBC) at GMIT Castlebar & Galway will commence on March 31st 2012. Qualifying entrepreneurs will receive €15,000 in funding subject to satisfactory development reviews.
New Frontiers will consist of Three Phases:
The First Phase will test the feasibility of the proposition. It is the shortest phase (4 weeks) and will be conducted on a part-time basis.
The Second Phase is much more intensive. Those accepted onto this phase must commit on a full-time basis for 6 months. Space will be offered for free in the IiBCs. €15,000 funding will be available to all eligible participants.
The Third Phase is built around the business success and growth, getting to the market, exporting, generating employment and attracting investment.
The Programme is fully supported by experienced mentors and support is on hand from concept phase right through to commercialisation.
Further information is available on the New Frontiers section of www.gmit.ie/iibc.
