¤100k for online aid
Ten companies received €100,000 as part of the IE Domain Registry OPTIMISE fund.
The National Leprechaun Museum, Paul Carberry Racewear and Dublin fashion label Kate And Ava were among those who received the funds to upgrade their existing online presence.
By using new online technologies, the recipients will be better placed to harness the potential of the internet as a 24-hour sales and marketing channel.
This means they will be able to gain competitive advantage in an online marketplace.
