Background & Mission

The County Enterprise Boards (now Local Enterprise Offices) were established in 1993 to provide business support services at local level to the micro enterprise sector (businesses with less than 10 employees) and to cultivate and expand an ethos of local entrepreneurship.

The statutory basis for all City and County Enterprise Boards was established in the Industrial Development Act 1995. Each County Enterprise Board is a not for profit limited company whose activities are performed on the basis of an agreement drawn up between it and the Department of Enterprise Trade & Employment. The Exchequer, supported by the EU provides most of the funding for the County Enterprise Boards.
