At Highlands and Islands Enterprise we understand the importance of continual innovation in sustaining a business and maintaining competitive advantage. However, we know that implementing new ideas can be a tricky process.
That’s why we have created Innovate your Business, a support programme to help businesses in the Highlands and Islands develop new ideas into commercially viable opportunities.
We welcome approaches from small and medium sized enterprises with ideas that have the potential to:
Sometimes having the idea is the easy bit. The most successful innovations are rigorously tested against multiple criteria throughout the development process.
To maximise the return on investment it’s essential to develop a plan that includes measurable objectives, is time bound and considers the resources and the funding required to deliver it.
Through our extensive network we can facilitate introductions to companies, academics, other support organisations, or potential customers, who could be valuable collaborators.
We can provide funding of up to £15,000 to small and medium sized enterprises towards projects that will economically benefit the business.
