Two globally recognised entrepreneurs will be attending a ceremony in the city tomorrow where local businesses will be recognised for their innovation.

Jo Malone, the fragrance entrepreneur, will join coffee entrepreneur Martyn Dawes as guest speakers at the iFactory Celebration Conference and Awards in the City Hotel.

The winners will be chosen from participants in iFactory - a two year programme designed to provide bespoke innovation support to small and medium sized enterprises across Northern Ireland and the border counties.

Led by North West Regional College and managed by the Northern Ireland Business and Innovation Centre (NORIBIC), the £1.65m programme was funded through the European Union’s INTERREG IVA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).

It has given support to 150 small businesses.
