The Boosting Business campaign has been developed by Invest NI in direct response to the continuing impact of the economic downturn.
Businesses, large and small, throughout Northern Ireland face a wide range of challenges on a daily basis. A decline in the demand for products and services, increased competition both at home and abroad, a lack of bank lending, inflexible credit terms, employee skills gaps and shortages, the high cost of insurance, taxes and health and safety, reduced economic activity, and the adverse impact this can have on cashflow and supply chains.
Like many, your business has to make difficult choices. The key to your survival lies in your ability to revise your business plan according to the changing economic and business conditions, and successfully differentiate your business from the competition. Invest NI can offer a comprehensive range of support measures. Many of these are new, whilst others already available to our customers have had their eligibility criteria broadened to make them available to businesses that are not currently our customers.
We can help your business succeed in these difficult times, whether you want to build the skills of your workforce, use new technology to improve competitiveness, break into new markets, develop new products, or create jobs. Available through a combination of financial, capability development support, advisory services, and regional seminars and workshops, our support has been structured under five key themes:
- Boosting Business through Jobs
- Boosting Business through R&D
- Boosting Business through Exports
- Boosting Business through Technology
- Boosting Business through Skills
Through our network of offices across Northern Ireland and our specialist teams of experts and advisors, we are confident we can help your business defy the downturn.
