Good idea/invention owners

VITAL will assess your business idea and will work with you to successfully exploit it by matching it with a seasoned entrepreneur or existing small to medium sized business.

The entrepreneurs who will commercialise your idea are seasoned entrepreneurs and not first-time entrepreneurs, which can increase the chances of successful commercialisation.

Successfully matched ideas can avail of a priming fund to test market attractiveness and technically validate ideas early on and thus ensures greater success.

VITAL provides support throughout the year and as such has multiple entry points which allows a start within the region at any time within the programme cycle.

VITAL provides access to multidisciplinary experts with sector and market knowledge.
