Local Enterprise Office South Dublin announces details of “Local Enterprise Week” initiative scheduled for 7th to 13th March

Local Enterprise Office (LEO) South Dublin announces a series of exciting events during Local Enterprise Week 2016. All 31 Local Enterprise Offices around the country are running hundreds of events during the week 7th to 13th of March, to promote the supports available to local entrepreneurs and businesses.

Des English of the LEO South Dublin launching Local Enterprise Week said: “There are plenty of business opportunities out there but you have to go out and find them. We want to help small businesses to identify opportunities for growth. Equally, anyone with a viable idea for a new business needs to be encouraged to pursue that ambition. Local Enterprise Week is a brilliant platform to help increase awareness of the role of LEOs both here in South Dublin and throughout the country in helping to create and sustain local jobs”.

Speaking at the launch of the Local Enterprise Week initiative, Chief Executive of South Dublin County Council Daniel McLoughlin commented: “I am delighted to support the Local Enterprise Week being delivered by LEO South Dublin. The week-long schedule of events highlights what is available to new and existing micro enterprises and business through a range of advisory, training, mentoring and financial supports”.

Over the course of the week, LEO South Dublin will deliver a wide variety of events aimed at developing all aspects of your business skills. These events will cover idea generation, business planning, funding and marketing. There will also be a focus on exporting, perfecting your pitch, greening your business and a regional Start Up Bootcamp.

Along with student and local enterprise events, there will be a series of regional and networking events in conjunction with LEOs across the Dublin region.

A particular highlight of the week will be the event featuring Dublin All-Ireland Winner and successful entrepreneur Philly McMahon on 9th March where Philly will speak about the lessons learned from his business, sporting and life experiences.
