Late last year in November, the Welsh Innovation Centre for Enterprise, (Welsh ICE), secured over a quarter-of-a-million pounds in funding to help support 50 start-up businesses in Wales and now we’re introducing a follow up scheme- The Top-up 10!
The funding will give an additional 10 start-up businesses a fully-funded package including a full-time desk, a tailored mentoring programme, creative workshops, full telephone and high-speed internet access and one-to-one support for 12 months.
Founder Gareth said;
“The companies that have come in through the ICE50 program have been really inspiring and are truly
world class. We’re really psyched to be able to welcome another 10 and have no doubt that these will of a equally high standard.”
ICE50 was developed by Welsh ICE and partners to give entrepreneurs and start-up businesses the boost they need to grow their enterprises in a sustainable way. Companies that have benefited from previous funding include, Castell Education, Big Lemon Creative and Impact.
The closing date for applications is the 27th of March. The submissions will then be evaluated by a panel of judges, with businesses being notified in early April.
