Council chairman Charlie Casey, said: “I am delighted to invite all our local businesses to take part in Enterprise Week. We all understand the challenges that businesses face in creating, growing and innovating and this week long programme will allow them to take advantage of the available advice and support. 

“From already established businesses, to the next generation of young entrepreneurs hearing about the latest digital technology updates and women leading the way in the district — this is a week not to be missed.”

In addition to encouraging entrepreneurs, Enterprise Week will highlight career path opportunities available to local residents through career fairs and skills development events, all striving to increase entrepreneurial opportunities throughout the area.
