Registration & Refreshments from 9:30am | Event Start 10:00am | Lunch & Networking 12:45pm
Is your start-up business or SME struggling to get an energy innovation to the next level? Then join us to hear from companies that have succeeded in this with the help of the FREED Project.
Getting your ideas from the blueprints into the markets can be a long, difficult journey, which all innovations and companies are not be able to complete. Various business support organisations and enterprise agencies offer support for starting entrepreneurs and companies, but they do not target energy innovations in particular. However, these are the ones that are sorely needed, as energy is a key driver of climate change.
Funding Resources for Innovation in Energy Enterprise Development (FREED) is a three year project funded under Interreg’s Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme. FREED has been supporting SMEs and start-ups working on energy innovations with the aim of getting the innovations faster into the real world, where they can make a difference. The experiences of these SMEs and the support mechanisms developed in the project can help other innovations make it too.
During this event you will hear from:
- SMEs who have been receiving support from the FREED Project and how it has helped them progress
- Public Funding Specialist Ian Brannigan (Western Development Commission)
- Business Angel Investor Nick Lyth (Green Angel Syndicate
- You will also learn about the FREED Service platform – a funding match-making platform for SMEs, Investors and Enterprise Agencies.
