The fund was launched by Minister for Agriculture, Food, and the Marine, Michael Creed, T.D., at Our Ocean Wealth Summit at Seafest 2018 in Galway.

The Competitive Start Fund provides entrepreneurs and start-ups with the critical early-stage funding to test the market for their products and services and progress their business plans for the global marketplace. The fund, designed to enable those companies to progress key technical and commercial milestones, will provide up to €50,000 in equity funding for each successful applicant. ♦
