Digital Discovery Grant

What is a digital discovery grant

The Digital Discovery Grant is an initiative backed by Enterprise Ireland. Its primary purpose is to support and encourage companies to craft a strategic roadmap for their transition into the digital realm. This roadmap encompasses a comprehensive review of a company’s existing systems, processes, and capabilities, and delves into exploring new opportunities presented by the digital age.

Benefits of the digital discovery grant for businesses

Financial Leverage

With Enterprise Ireland shouldering 80% of the project cost up to a maximum of €6,300, businesses can undertake comprehensive digital transformations without being burdened by excessive expenses.

Expert Consultancy

The grant facilitates up to 7 days of external consultancy. This means businesses get the advantage of expert insights and recommendations, driving their digital strategy forward.

The grant covers consultancy costs up to €900 per day, inclusive of all associated expenses. While this is the maximum rate supported, businesses have the flexibility to choose consultants whose rates might be higher or lower, ensuring they find the perfect fit for their specific needs.
