The Enterprise Fund is about developing those start-up businesses that need assistance in taking the next step in their growth plan. This may be funding towards a new piece of equipment, developing I.T. infrastructure, implementing a significant marketing campaign, product and design development and so forth. This fund is aimed at supporting new businesses, with a track record of two years or less, to address barriers to growth using innovative approaches.
