Access to Funding

A new initiative, recently launched by Invest Northern Ireland, will make it easier for local small and medium-sized businesses to get the help they require to access funding.

Under the Finance Voucher scheme, businesses that meet the eligibility criteria (follow the link for full details), can apply for funding of up to 49% of the cost of preparing a funding proposal or business plan, up to a maximum of £4,000.

Details of how to apply for a voucher can be found here.

The team at HNH would be keen to hear from any business that is interested in using the Finance Voucher scheme to access debt or equity finance. With a deadline of 30 April for the initial round of applications, time is of the essence.
