Innovate NI

Helping businesses create value from ideas to increase market share, survive business shocks, improve competitiveness and become successful innovators.


Innovation is a process – a structured managed process; only the right idea, which has been tested and developed, and commercialised or implemented can create value.  We have developed our programme to help businesses understand this process. Find out what stage of the processes you are at, follow the guided pathway to creating value and get recognised along the way.
