Going for Growth, the award-winning programme for ambitious female entrepreneurs determined to grow their business, continues going from strength to strength.

A total of 65 female entrepreneurs have been selected for the 14th cycle of Going for Growth, which started recently. Between them these entrepreneurs already have annual sales of almost €44 million. More than one third of them are already exporters.  They currently employ almost 550 people, over 400 of these full-time, and have very ambitious plans for their future growth.

A further 14 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, half are exporters and between them they employ over 310 people, with further growth planned.

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.
