As you can see there’s a lot. And there’s probably a lot more that we don’t know about. You can download it. You can also add to it if there’s sources that we’ve missed. But do you know what would be really great? If you have used any of the services listed, tell us about it. What do they do? Do they offer funding? What’s their criteria for qualifying for that funding? What was the process like? Keep it positive and constructive. Over the coming months we may end up with a definitive one stop shop of funding and SME assistance sources in Ireland – North and South. But it’s really up to you to contribute! Send us your feedback.
