CreativeStateAre you a business in the Agri-food, Life Science, Technology or Tourism Sector trading in the North West of Ireland with an idea to develop your business but you just don’t have the time or money to progress it? Would you like to fast track your idea by working with a creative business? Or are you a Creative Business looking for new clients? If so, you’ll want to apply for a new fund that has re-opened in the North West.

Following a successful test round in 2012, 4CNW Talent re-opens on 7th January 2013. The programme invites businesses from the North West of Ireland (Sligo, Mayo, Leitrim, Roscommon and Donegal) in the Agri-food, Life Sciences, Technology and Tourism sectors to apply for a talent voucher (between €1,000 and €5,000) which they then match fund to commission the services of a creative professional that can offer new areas of expertise to help solve a business challenge.

Successful voucher recipients will join innovative companies who received funding in the 4CNW test round including; Voya, Ireland West Airport Knock, Woodrow Sustainable Solutions, The Model and Koko Latte. These businesses have used their 4CNW talent voucher to work with outstanding Creatives from the North West to complete projects that included rebranding, web design, promotional films, live music broadcasts, digital marketing, architectural and spatial design and cultural tourism development.

Businesses from the North West with a challenge, and creative professionals with expertise interested in this opportunity to engage with new clients, are invited to visit www.creativestatenorthwest.com to submit an online application now. Applications for business will remain open until Monday 18th February 2013, and for Creatives until Friday 8th March 2013. You can find complete information on 4CNW, and stories from the test round, on our website, or you can visit one of our Discovery events which are being held in Sligo on 30th January 2013.
