Are you an established company, looking to grow your business and in need of new finance options?
InterTradeIreland's Funding for Growth programme is aimed at SMEs who are looking for new or alternative sources of funding to finance business growth. Details of our supports are outlined below.
The banks have always been the principle drivers of business finance, however there is now an increasing choice of alternative funding available in the market today. This includes Asset Financing, Asset Based Lending (ABL), Peer to Peer Lending (P2P), Equity Funding, Crowd funding and Government Backed Loan Funds.
Watch our 3 min Video for an overview of the alternative forms of finance available.
We offer companies the following business support options:
Our FREE regional advisory clinics give you the opportunity to meet with a corporate finance expert to discuss in private and on a one to one basis your individual funding for growth plans. Please note that eligibility criteria and short listing may be applied for clinics.
Our Funding for Growth programme is currently subject to an evaluation. We hope to roll out the next phase of the programme shortly.
Two Meet the Funder events were held in April 2016. Both events provided delegates with information on and access to a range of funding providers. Speakers addressed how businesses should approach the funding process and the events also provided companies with an opportunity to network with funding providers.
