What is Innovate?

INNOVATE is a joint programme between Leitrim County Enterprise Board and Omagh Enterprise Company that provides businesses with the opportunity to improve profitability.

The INNOVATE programme provides a project manager, one based in Leitrim and one based in Omagh, who will help identify aspects of a business that can be improved. The project manager will visit a business and discuss the areas that may be developed. During these meetings, the project manager can also identify other areas of the business that could be improved through other functions of the INNOVATE programme. These areas may include the introduction of a new process or technology or the provision of specialised mentoring and/or training.
The INNOVATE programme will also present some of the latest practices in marketing, e-business and new technology. Business support from each project manager in addition to assistance from our strong mentor panel is also available to help implement some of these best practices.

Other elements of the programme include:
· The development of an Innovation Centre in Omagh and in Leitrim displaying some of the latest smart solutions for businesses
· Innovation evenings on a range of topics from internet and e-business to marketing
· Academic and Research & Development Links with Third Level Institutions and Universities.

Innovate is part-financed by the European Union through the Interreg IIIA Programme managed for the Special EU Programmes Body by the ICBAN Partnership.
