Local businesses encouraged to avail of innovation vouchers
April, 2018
Local businesses have the opportunity to avail of up to £5,000 financial support to bring their new products or services closer to market through the Invest Northern Ireland (NI) Innovation Voucher programme, with assistance from The InnoTech Centre at South West College (SWC).

At a recent information workshop at the SWC Dungannon Campus, local businesses learned more about how to apply for an innovation voucher, worth up to £5,000, to assist them in moving their business ideas forward.

Representatives from the Innovation Voucher programme were on hand to give advice and guidance on the application process and the wealth of resources, services and expertise on offer from both Invest NI and the InnoTech Centre.

Local business, Oran Oak Engineering Ltd also shared their experience of using the programme to design and market their new product ‘DipFast’, a sheep shower unit designed to protect the welfare of the animal and the environment, whilst also safeguarding the operator from chemical and livestock, which is now available for sale.
