Ireland is a leading European centre of support for start-ups, entrepreneurs and innovative organisations.

Throughout the country businesses at all stages of commercialisation are succeeding on a national and international stage as a result of the generous grant aid and excellent range of soft supports (mentorship, advice, training) available. Navigating the vast number of support options available to businesses of all sizes via Enterprise Ireland, Local Enterprise Offices and the seventy other state agency support bodies available can be a time consuming and daunting process for the uninitiated. The challenge of submitting a succinct, yet informative application which resonates with the reviewer requires a high level of business savvy, time and attention to detail.

The IMS Innovation team have an in-depth understanding of the wide variety of supports available and have secured innovation funding for several clients, from start-ups to SME’s to larger businesses. We also work as mentors and consultants with many Local Enterprise Offices (LEO’s), Enterprise Ireland and many of Ireland’s state supported innovation centres. Through gaining a unique insight into your organisation’s growth objectives, our experienced team will recommend the most appropriate funding option for your venture and will support you through the application processes, giving you the best possible chance of success.
