Propel is designed for entrepreneurs with ideas for businesses that have the potential to scale up and reach significant export growth.
It has already helped over 30 local entrepreneurs to set up and grow successful businesses based on innovative ideas, products and technology.
Pictured encouraging fellow 'propellers' to come forward are previous programme participants Janette O'Hagan co-founder and CEO of Okotech, which has developed an innovative, wireless heating control system called heatboss®, and Fergus Wallace, founder of www.mygripzone.com an online interactive golf coaching aid.
To launch the 2013 Propel programme and outline how it can help turn an idea into a globally focused business, Invest NI is running five regional awareness seminars during the week commencing the 10th of December in Newry, Omagh, Londonderry, Ballymena and Belfast.
