The Irish agri-business sector has an unrivalled reputation across the world. Agricultural machinery exports reach over €100m per annum primarily to the UK and Europe with several Irish machinery companies exporting on a global scale.
The agri-business sector is set to continue to expand with significant events such as the abolition of dairy quotas in 2015, and the commitments to the Irish food and agri-business industry in Harvest 2020.
Enterprise Ireland recognise the need to encourage, grow and develop the next generation of Irish agri-business companies competing on a global scale. The Competitive Feasibility Fund for Agri-Business aims to support agri-business entrepreneurs grow scalable businesses.
The total fund size is up to €250,000. The maximum grant available is €25,000. The grant is calculated at a maximum of 50% of eligible expenditure of up to €50,000 incurred by the successful applicant.
Eligible applications for funding will be considered on a competitive basis. Enterprise Ireland will assess eligibility of the activities proposed in the study and associated costs. The amount of support will be determined by the Evaluation Panel following the Final Assessment.
