Global Business Opportunities for Irish SMEs through the Enterprise Europe Network

On Friday last the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), the world’s largest support network for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) announced a new partnership with 31 Local Enterprise Offices in Ireland. This will mean free access for Irish companies to Europe’s largest database with up to 10,000 new business and technology opportunities in the EU and many other major global markets.

Speaking today at the announcement, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD commented: “This new partnership between the Enterprise Europe Network and the Local Enterprise Offices will provide Irish companies with an important gateway into the EU and a bigger footprint globally. I am confident that this new partnership will help our companies forge new international partnerships which will contribute to a boost in Irish exports”.

The Enterprise Europe Network in Ireland is a joint partnership between Enterprise Ireland, Local Enterprise Offices, Dublin Chamber of Commerce and Cork Chamber of Commerce. Launched in January, the Network is co-financed under ‘COSME’, the EU funding programme for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and SMEs. The services are tailored for SMEs but are also available to all other businesses, universities and research centres.
