Innovate bursary doubles to e30,000
THE Cork Innovates bursary fund has more than doubled to €30,000 this year.
The fund, which was made available by an initiative to drive entrepreneurship in the region, has increased from €12,000 last year.
The bursary will be given to one lucky entrepreneur to help boost their business.
It will offer a range of services, from advertising, financial advice and mentoring to legal services and membership supports.
"Last year we received an overwhelming response from Cork start-ups and businesses to the bursary," said Siobhan Finn, pictured, Cork Innovates co-ordinator.
