InterTradeIreland’s Challenge Programme is designed to help ambitious SMEs go from ideas to sales with less time, money and risk. It is FREE to take part and the programme works in three stages:
1Challenge Briefing Events (now complete & closed for applications)
This years programme was launched in October with briefing events held on the 2nd and 3rd October 2012. These events were held in Dublin, Belfast, Sligo and Limerick.
2Challenge Workshops (now complete & closed for applications)
Participants took on the ‘challenge’ in November 2012 at workshops whereby they learned to apply the new learning, tools and techniques to their own company situation and then presented back on their draft plans. These presentations will next be adjudicated confidentially on a separate day and every company will receive personalised feedback from our experts.
Even though you didn’t make the events, you will still be able to take these tools away and use them in your business. Download the presentations from here.
