Welcome to Local Enterprise Office South Cork

Local Enterprise Office South Cork

Summer seems to have arrived but don't go neglecting those business aspirations and ambitions with the lure of all this sunshine tempting us from our desks!! Though some time-out may not necessarily be a bad thing. Why not take some time away from the daily routine and consider some of the offerings that may support you in your business. A few suggestions are set out below that, if you would like some further information on if you feel they are suddenly relevant for you, we would be delighted to help you with.

If there is a particular issue that you are struggling with, need some help on or just need an ear to bounce your ideas off why not consider attending one of our weekly business advice clinics for some one on one with our team of business experts. These are proving very popular and book out on a regular basis so don't delay and click HERE to find the next available date that will work for you.

Some initiatives that may be of relevance to you at the moment:

  • Are you planning any overseas trade missions or market visits? If your business qualifies you might like to consider applying for a TAME (Technical Assistance for Micro Exporters) Grant.
  • Having thoughts about going into business for yourself? Our Start Your Own Business Programmes have helped hundreds of people in the past few years to make their decisions on this. Please check our Schedule of Events for the next round of SYOB that might work for you!
  • Are you currently thinking about upgrading your trading online presence? A TRADING ONLINE VOUCHER may be waiting for you!!!
  • Very early stage or having some credit issues and require an injection of funds? A MICROFINANCE LOAN might be a suitable option.

Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs), act as a “First Stop Shop” for anyone seeking information and support on starting or growing a business in Ireland.  The role of the LEO is to drive the development of local enterprise, putting micro and small business at the heart of job creation.  We support business start-ups and work to increase the job potential of new and existing micro and small businesses with information, advice, training, mentoring, seminars and selective financial support.

We invite you to take a look around our website and see just what might be relevant to you at this point in time. See our upcoming training programmes and events, our various grant programmes, the partners we work with and more.

Cork County Council is committed to supporting enterprise within our region and as your Local Enterprise Office we look forward to working with you on your business journey.
