RYE Connect

The RYE Connect Programme is currently CLOSED



RYE Connect offered an expanded RYE model which sought to provide transnational business opportunities, services and solutions for young entrepreneurs aged 16-30 years.

The programme supported young people wishing to set up a new business, entrepreneurs who had an existing business and wished to grow their business through export opportunities and those who were facing difficulties within their existing business who required support and guidance to turn their business around.

RYE Connect was funded by the Northern Periphery and Artic Programme through the European Regional Development Fund and supported by the DAERA Tackling Rural Poverty and Social Isolation Programme. The programme was delivered by project partners in Finland, Greenland and Northern Ireland and a wider Associate Network spanning the Northern Periphery and Arctic (NPA) region. RDC worked in partnership with Advantage to deliver the RYE Connect programme in Northern Ireland.
