Local Enterprise Week 2018

Local Enterprise Week set to inspire and motivate thousands of entrepreneurs and small business owners nationwide

Running from March 4th to 10th, all 31 LEOs will be celebrating Local Enterprise Week with a range of events for start-ups, aspiring entrepreneurs and small businesses in their area.

Entrepreneurs of all ages will have the opportunity to participate in workshops, seminars, advice clinics and one-to-one mentoring on every aspect of business, including: starting a business, trading on-line, finance, tendering, growing a business through digital marketing..


Local Enterprise Week officially kicks-off on Sunday, March 4th with the national final of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur (IBYE) competition in Google Headquarters in Dublin.  

Michael Nevin of the Local Enterprise Office Longford said that Local Enterprise Week was the ideal ‘shop window’ to show the wide range of supports on offer to start-ups, sole traders and small businesses. He said: “Local Enterprise Week, which takes place from March 4th to 10th, is a collaboration on a national scale between LEOs, local business communities, Government Departments, other units within Local Authorities, and State support agencies. We urge those in business or anyone thinking of starting a business to find out what events are taking place in their locality. We hope these events will inspire and motivate thousands of entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs across every region.  Small businesses continue to be the backbone of the Irish economy, with huge potential to grow and create jobs.”
