A Northern Ireland consultancy believes it can train companies on how to secure funding.
Vision Business Consultancy said it has a 100% success rate in helping firms get hold of finance, even if they've been rejected by banks or other funding organisations.
"There are numerous sources for marketing, brand development, key personnel, software, training and development, new product development and interim management," said managing director Grainne McConvery.
"The main thrust of my work is to identify the most relevant support available, write business plans for funding programmes and liaise with funding bodies."
"Northern Ireland companies have fantastic products and services which are perfect for international markets, but they need to have a solid plan behind the business in order to achieve investment from banks in particular."
Vision Business Consultancy is holding free one-hour sessions in Holywood on Wednesday and Thursday, October 17 and 18.
