Winning! Dublin business owners tell their stories

4-8pm Wednesday 21st November, Civic Centre, Ballymun

What is StartUp Ballymun about? The objective of StartUp Ballymun is to promote self-employment and enterprise in Ballymun and nearby.

How? By bringing together groups of entrepreneurs to share their know-how of starting and running their own companies.

“We present a group of business people all united under the theme of starting and growing a business in Dublin” says Liam Barry of Dublin City Council. “This is the sixth in the series of free StartUp Ballymun events. These entrepreneurs will tell the audience how they realised their ambition and face day-to-day challenges.

“Anyone already in a small business or seriously thinking of setting one up is encouraged to attend, meet and listen to the panel of entrepreneurs, access free advice from Local Enterprise Dublin City mentors, meet representatives of enterprise support agencies and network with members of Ballymun4business

For this event we are delighted to be included in the schedule of Techstars StartUpWeek Dublin.”
