Local Enterprise Office

Welcome to Local Enterprise Office South Cork

Local Enterprise Office South Cork

Welcome to 2018. Will all those New Years Resolutions to choose from maybe this is the year you decide to start your own business. Or if already in business why not take a little time out to work on your business and maybe the LEO might just have a programme that addresses what it is you would wish to work on. If so we would love to hear from you or have you participate in one of our programmes or events, or indeed where relevant have you apply for one of our financial supports.  I would invite you to check back in regularly to see do we have a training programme, an event, a network evening or a financial support and more that may just be right for you. 

Should you wish at any stage to talk to one of our advisers please give us a call and we will arrange that for you. We are located in the The Business Growth Hub on the County Hall campus. 

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.
