'Without the Proof of Concept Fund my business idea may never have progressed. The money was spent on invaluable marketing that allowed me to launch Data Bitz Ltd and start trading.' - Leigh Davidson, Data Bitz Ltd
'The Proof of Concept Fund at the Research and Innovation Office made it possible for me to launch my new jewellery collection to an international audience. The necessary preparation of a thorough proposal encouraged me to calculate real costs and to balance these against the short and long term results I hope to see.' - Antonella Giomarelli
