Innovate Your Business Clinics

20 April 2016 to 19 May 2016

The clinics below are free to attend.


If you’ve got a new idea to grow your business but don’t know how to make it happen, we’re here to help.


At Highland and Islands Enterprise (HIE) we understand how new ideas can be turned into business growth. Through innovation customer services can be improved, production can become more efficient and new customers can be attracted.

However, we know that delivering it can be a tricky process. There can be difficulties in implementing your idea within your organisation, finding the right advice or making sure it meets
your business objectives. That’s why we have created Innovate your Business; an initiative designed to aid the growth of your business by helping you realise the value of your ideas.

With our expertise, we can work together to maximise the commercial potential of your innovations by offering advice, support, direction and even funding.


We can provide funding of up to £15,000 to SMEs to aid development that ultimately benefits the business and the Highlands and Islands economy. This is made available throughout
the year to applicants working in the Highlands and Islands, to companies or branches that have no more than 250 employees.
