The minimum voucher value is £1,000 (for a project with a total value of £2,000) and most vouchers awarded will be in the region of £2,500 (for a project with a total value of £5,000).The vouchers can be used to purchase private sector support such as:
Production of a prototype prior to full-scale production.
Commissioning specialist intellectual property advice.
Production of a marketing campaign or branding.
Paying for specialist technical expertise.
Development of a website or re-development of a website with additional functionality.
