Existing Business Supports

Sometimes small business owner-managers are so busy attending to day-to-day tasks that they do not allocate the necessary time to plan effectively for the longer-term consolidation and growth of their business. LEO Kilkenny encourages and facilitates owner-managers to plan strategically in order to grow and expand their businesses. We strive to encourage existing businesses to develop niche markets and greater value-added products and services. We also facilitate existing small businesses to grow by helping them to expand and capitalise on new market opportunities.
