Running from October 5th to 9th across venues throughout Fingal, the Fingal Enterprise Week will be the biggest ever local “Enterprise Week” not just in Fingal, but in Ireland. The week promises a programme of events designed to boost business opportunities and deliver opportunities for SMEs and aspiring entrepreneurs to learn from industry experts.
An initiative of the Fingal Local Enterprise Office and supported by Vodafone and Bank of Ireland, over 1,500 local businesses and start-ups will benefit from 30 major business events, workshops, networking opportunities and mentoring clinics. Activities to be held during Fingal Enterprise Week include some great success stories sharing their experience with the next generation of Irish Business.
Some of the key highlights include:
- Fingal Start-Up Day will attract hundreds of aspiring entrepreneurs for an intensive full day “Business Start-Up” bootcamp.
- Dublin Senior Footballer Bernard Brogan leads a stellar team of Irish sports stars in the networking highlight “Fit for Business”. The sports stars are not only successful in their field of sport but all are owner-managers of SMEs and will explain how they manage their physical and mental fitness to ensure success in both sport and business.
- A new business network for female entrepreneurs will be launched – “Fingal Enterprising Women”
- Several networking events and seminars featuring key industry experts that will address topics such as: “Caring for Your Customers”, “Learning from Experience”, “Company Law”, Costing and Pricing”, “Supercharge Your Sales”, “Financing Your Start-up” and many more.
Speaking at this week’s launch Paul Reid, Chief Executive, Fingal County Council, said of the initiative, “Now that economic recovery has clearly taken root, we must remain focused on ensuring that our local entrepreneurs and employers are provided with appropriate supports, so that they can seize opportunities to grow their businesses and to continue to create much-needed employment.”
He continued: “That is why we are proud to support this worthwhile initiative again this year. I urge all businesses in the County to participate fully in the exciting array of activities and I look forward to meeting many of you during Fingal Enterprise Week”.
