Mid Ulster District Council and Mid Ulster Enterprise Partnership are calling all aspiring entrepreneurs to ‘get on board’ the new Mid Ulster Business Start Programme as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week.
The recently launched programme seeks to encourage potential new starts to produce a business plan, one of the first important steps to starting a new business and moving into self-employment. Tailored advice and training support will be provided through the programme to individuals at this critical start-up stage.
Vice Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Sharon McAleer welcomed the new council funded programme.
“Research has shown that Mid Ulster is the highest performing area in terms of entrepreneurial activity in Northern Ireland, and both the Council and Mid Ulster Enterprise Partnership are ambitious to ensure this position is sustained.”
Brian McAuley, Chief Executive of Dungannon Enterprise Centre and Mid Ulster Enterprise Partnership lead stated,
“We would encourage any aspiring entrepreneur to get involved in the programme, no matter what stage their idea is at. It is with the expertise and support of our advisors that a new business idea can become reality.”
The programme is being delivered by Mid Ulster Enterprise Partnership, a consortium led by Dungannon Enterprise Centre, Cookstown Enterprise Centre and Workspace Ltd.
Recruitment to the Mid Ulster Business Start Programme has now commenced. If you have a new business idea please contact Lucy McCreesh at Dungannon Enterprise Centre on 028 8772 3489.
