The newest participants on the 12th cycle of Going for Growth, the award-winning programme for ambitious female entrepreneurs determined to grow their business, met for the first time this week.

A total of 83 female entrepreneurs have been selected for the 12th cycle of Going for Growth — the highest number of participants since the programme began.  Between them these entrepreneurs already have annual sales of over €170 million and just under half of them are already exporters.  They currently employ almost 2,400 people and have ambitious plans for their future growth.

Going for Growth is designed to support these entrepreneurs to achieve their growth ambitions, helping create new jobs and grow their sales.  Going for Growth is sponsored by Enterprise Ireland and KPMG.

A further 13 entrepreneurs, who are members of the Going for Growth Community, have also been selected to continue their growth journey through participation on Continuing the Momentum round tables. Between them these entrepreneurs currently have annual sales of over €25 million, just over half are exporters and between them they employ over 310 people, with further growth planned.
