Are newly established companies eligible to apply? Will you be assessing the company’s longevity, track record, experience, etc.?

We follow a case-by-case process. For newly established businesses, it will depend on how new they are and whether they have demonstrated that their business model is feasible and has growth potential. In general, we do require some kind of a track record or evidence that the activities being proposed will create jobs.
