As Ireland’s Enterprise Bank we began our Enterprise Town initiative in 2013, launching in Fermoy . By the end of 2015, we will have supported local communities in delivering over 50 ‘Enterprise Towns’ across Ireland with the programme growing to include our first Enterprise Club, Enterprise County, Enterprise City and some combined Enterprise Communities.
The Enterprise Town initiative seeks to work with local businesses to plan and deliver a range of activities that will support and generate business in the area. The initiative also involves the wider community and the schools to ensure everyone can get involved and be part of the positive experience that is an Enterprise Town.
Bank of Ireland wants to support the development of these communities at both business level and in the wider context, incorporating schools, sports, social and charitable associations.
The Enterprise Town initiative was developed to allow this to happen and, to date, has worked very well delivering excellent community led results across the country.
