Regional Start Initiative

Sub Menu

The Regional Start initiative is the national business start up programme for Northern Ireland. Regional Start provides you with a range of guidance, support, training and business clinics and also ongoing support to help you develop and grow your business.

From 1 April 2015, responsibility for Business Start transferred to Councils.  In order to give Councils time to prepare and create a programme fit for purpose, it was agreed with Invest NI to extend the contract for the current programme, which was initially for two years, for a further period up to 22 October 2015.  This established mechanism now continues until March 2016.
