Welsh ICE otherwise known as the Welsh Innovation Centre for Enterprise, located in Caerphilly Business Park, Caerphilly, South Wales, has just opened its next round of funding and is now inviting applications from vibrant startups and entrepreneurs to locate themselves in their Caerphilly Enterprise Centre.
Following on from an extraordinary response to the intake last November where over 60 entrepreneurs were awarded a position at ICE, the centre now looks to support another batch of 50 startup businesses.
The funding is designed to give startup businesses a structured route to sustainability, creating jobs and boosting the Welsh economy.
The support will be delivered through the centre’s ICE 50 programme, where 50 startup businesses receive a fully funded package including a full time desk, a tailored mentoring programme, creative workshops, telephone & high speed internet access and one to one support for a full year.
ICE currently has 120 entrepreneurs based throughout three buildings on the ICE Campus in Caerphilly and ICE was recently recognised in the Senedd as having created over £13.5m for the Welsh economy.
A limited number of places will be available each month for the next 6 months, and businesses from all sectors and industries can apply.
The closing date for the first round of applications is October 2nd, and businesses are invited to submit their ideas to ICE through the website (www.welshice.org) or by contacting Community Manager Jamie McGowan via email on email@example.com. You can also call ICE on 02920 140 040.
The submissions will then be evaluated by a panel of judges, with businesses being notified in late October.
