Launching the event Minister Richmond said, “I am delighted to be launching Local Enterprise Week here in Dublin in what is the ten-year anniversary of our LEOs. I have been fortunate to visit many of our LEOs across the country, and I have seen first-hand the impact of their supports on entrepreneurs and small businesses. This impact cannot be overstated and the fact that LEOs supported over 38,000 jobs last year is a testament to this.

From financial help to mentorship opportunities, LEO support can be transformative for small businesses and I would encourage anyone who has their own business, or is considering starting their own business, to reach out to their LEO.”
