Bootcamp costs €350 + VAT. This fee covers two representatives from your food business. You also need to factor in accommodation and transport costs.
The Food Works Programme costs €3,000 + VAT. Again, this fee covers two representatives from your food business.
In total, we advise that you set aside 25 days over a six-month period and allow time to develop your business plan.
The Food Works Programme is made up of ten, day-long workshops and a further six business adviser sessions, over six months. The trip to the Speciality Fine Food Fair in London is a two-day event.
No, registering for an introductory meeting means that a member of the Food Works team will contact you and set up a meeting to see if the programme is the right fit for your business. After the introductory meeting, if you think the Food Works Programme is for your business, then you need to apply to take part. Applications reopen in 2017.
Introductory meetings are held in various locations around the country. Bootcamp typically takes place close to Dublin. The workshops and business adviser sessions usually take place in either Bord Bia, Enterprise Ireland or Teagasc facilities. The overseas market study trip is usually to London.
You will leave the Programme with many contacts in the food and drinks industry in Ireland. Participants are also encouraged to join the Food Works Alumni, Food Works Plus once they complete the programme.
