New Summer Series of Fingal Business Briefings Announced

Fingal Business Briefing

Fingal Local Enterprise Office has announced the launch of a new series of “in-person” Business Support Briefings, to take place on the First Friday of each month throughout the Summer period. The lunchtime briefings will be run at the Riasc Centre, Kinsealy, from 12.30 pm to 1.30 pm, and geared at Fingal-based business owner/managers, and residents that aim to start a new business. A series of speakers will outline up-to-date information on supports that are available to SMEs in Fingal, including how to access grants/financial incentives, management development training, mentoring, and networking opportunities. A light networking lunch will be provided, and each event is free of charge to Fingal businesses and residents (though booking is essential).

Speaking about the new business briefings, Oisin Geoghegan, Head of Enterprise in Fingal, commented: “We want to make sure that all Fingal businesses are aware of the supports that are available to them from the Local Enterprise Office and other key state agencies. In addition, there are many Fingal residents that are in the process of starting their own business or maybe just have a good idea for a business. These individuals need some direction, information, training and funding to progress their start-up. The Business Briefing will give them a clear idea of what supports they may be eligible for.”

Places on the inaugural Business Briefing can be booked at https://www.localenterprise.ie/Fingal/Training-Events/Online-Bookings/Miscellaneous/Fingal-Business-Briefing-Friday-6th-May-2022-In-person-.html . The events also provide an opportunity to meet with business advisors from the Local Enterprise Office, and each briefing will be followed with a complimentary networking light lunch.
