Local Enterprise Office Tipperary announces plans for ‘Local Enterprise Week’ March 6-10

Around the country, 14,500 small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs expected to attend over 380 events during Local Enterprise Week in March. 

The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Ms. Mary Mitchell O’ Connor T.D. has welcomed plans by the Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs) to host more than 380 inspiring events around the country for an estimated 14,500 start-ups, aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners during Local Enterprise Week 2017. The focus of Local Enterprise Week is to increase awareness of the range of LEO supports and services available to micro and small enterprises.

Running from March 6 to 10, all 31 LEOs, including LEO Tipperary 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 seminars, workshops, clinics, master classes and networking opportunities at 13 locations across the County.

Highlights of Local Enterprise Week in Tipperary are expected to include:

  • Funding Workshops in Roscrea & Tipperary Town
  • Owner Manager/ Networking Breakfast on 8 March at the Anner Hotel
  • Social Media Masterclass on 7 March at Lakeside Hotel, Ballina
  • Trading Online Voucher Presentation on 7 March in Carrick-on–Suir Business Centre
  • Protect Your Intellectual Property Rights with the Irish Patents Office on 9 March in Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh
  • National Enterprise Awards in Cashel on 9 March
  • Student Enterprise Awards at LIT Thurles Campus on 10 March

Welcoming the extensive range of events planned by the LEOs for Local Enterprise Week, Minister Mitchell O’ Connor said: “I am very impressed with the comprehensive programme of events organised by the LEOs for Local Enterprise Week 2017. I would encourage every start-up and small business owner to make it their business to check out and participate in the events taking place in their locality. It is important that anyone starting or growing a business is fully aware of the extensive range of enterprise supports that are available to them. As set out in the Action Plan for Jobs, 2017, I also want to encourage more micro and small businesses to grow international sales and diversify into Europe and beyond. The LEOs are the first-stop-shop on hand to help entrepreneurs and small business owners embark on this journey.”
