Develop New Ideas
If you introduce new ideas, processes or products to your existing business, this is known as innovation.
Examples of innovation include:
- Changes to the way you deliver a service
- Changes to your business model
- Improving your day-to-day procedures
- Introducing new production methods
If your business has completed any of the steps outlined above, you could also achieve Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Innovator status, through Innovate NI, Northern Ireland's Innovation support initiative to support businesses to innovate successfully. Any company recognised under the Programme will receive a certificate from the Department for the Economy and promotional materials to help market themselves as an innovative enterprise.
