Mayo Businesses encouraged to take advantage of Local Enterprise Week
Businesses across Mayo are being encouraged to take advantage of the array of events and topics at this year’s Local Enterprise Week. The initiative of the Local Enterprise Offices takes place from the 7th to 11th March with over 220 events for businesses and entrepreneurs taking place in person and online across the country.
The theme of this year’s Week is “Making It Happen” and is focused on helping businesses to look forward and to future proof themselves for the years ahead. The full listings for the week have been announced with several events taking place in Mayo to include online workshops on Starting Your Own Business, Preparing Your Business for Customs, and Understanding Financials for Business Planning. An information session on the Trading Online Voucher Scheme, and an in-person networking breakfast which will look at how businesses can lower operating costs by adopting renewable energy technologies and driving efficiencies in business will also take place during the week.
Along with the specific local events the Local Enterprise Offices have 12 national Spotlight events that are available online, taking place across the week and open to all small businesses and entrepreneurs across the country. These events are free to join online and cover everything from digitalisation and exporting to future proofing your business and boosting your business online.
John Magee, LEO Mayo Head of Enterprise said “Local Enterprise Week is the perfect opportunity for many businesses to dip into a specific area of interest and gather information on a topic that may be relevant to their business now or in the future. It also provides the perfect opportunity for someone who may be interested in starting a business to get an idea of some of the key areas of focus and how to take those first steps.”
