28/01/2014 - Get your business in shape at Business Bootcamp



Microfinance Ireland is paving the way for young entrepreneurs and businesses as they announce that Lorna Coleman, Project Manager will be speaking at the Business Connections event on February 6 in the Abbey Hotel, Donegal Town.


The workshop will set the tone for those who have a keen interest in starting their own business or for existing businesses that need help establishing themselves.


Microfinance Ireland wants to make it easier for businesses to start up, expand, succeed and create jobs, by lending young business enthusiasts a start up fund to get their venture up and running.


Loans vary from just €2,000 to a generous €25,000 to help existing businesses and entrepreneurs make a brighter future and make the lifelong dream of owning their own business come true.


The business connections event is an initiative of the cross-border Business Bootcamp Project and along with Lorna Coleman from Microfinance Ireland will include an array of speakers including Gerry Duffy, Grainne Kelly, Joanne Sweeney Burke, Daniel Browne, Sarah Meehan and John Conaghan.


The event is not to be missed as it brings entrepreneurs together to explore opportunities for cross border trade, make contacts, do business, increase turnover, increase skills base, improve cross border business relationships, celebrate entrepreneurship and be part of the new and emerging business boot camp community.


The Business Bootcamp event is free but places are limited so book today at
