The applicant must be an Irish based retail enterprise that has 10 or more full-time employees and has the potential to sustain or create jobs, generate growth in online transactions and with an ambition to internationalise their business in future.
This is a competitive fund which will be administered by Enterprise Ireland on behalf of DETE with a total fund size of €3.4m. The Scheme provides direct financial support to retail companies to develop a more competitive online business offering to complement their in-store offering.
The Online Retail Scheme opened for applications on Tuesday 4 April 2023, and closes on 3 May 2023. Find further information and how to apply by clicking here.
