Event Details

4CNW Talent, a €100K innovation fund, re-opens on 7th January 2013 following a successful test round in 2012. 

This programme invites businesses from the North West of Ireland (Sligo, Mayo, Roscommon and Donegal) in the Agri-food, Life Sciences, Technology and Tourism sectors to apply for a talent voucher (between €1,000 and €5,000) to commission the services of a creative professional that can offer new areas of expertise to help solve a business challenge. Applications from Businesses will be assessed by an expert panel with successful businesses required to match their award creating a commissioning pot of up to €10,000 per project.

Successful voucher recipients will join Innovative companies who received funding in the test round including; Voya, Ireland West Airport Knock, Woodrow Sustainable Solutions, The Model and Koko Latte; who all used 4CNW talent to work with outstanding Creatives from the North West including Peter Martin (film), Avenir (Design), Applied Sense (Design), Tara McGowan (creative producer) and Michael O Domhnaill (film and broadcast)  to complete projects that included branding, web design, promotional films, live music broadcasts, architectural and spatial design and business development.

Creative Applicants will also be assessed for inclusion on the 4CNW Creative Directory.

4CNW (Creative Challenge Celtic Crescent North West) is one of 4 European projects set up to encourage the use of creative thinking as a powerful business tool.

Businesses from the North West with a challenge, and creative professionals with expertise interested in this opportunity to engage new clients, are invited to submit an online application from Monday 7 January 2013.

We will be hosting two Discovery Events for Businesses and Creatives in the Sligo Park Hotel on Wednesday 30th January 2013 to give all interested parties further information on how to apply.
