We are delighted to announce that another National Enterprise Week is due to take place from the 19th to 26th November 2010. In May earlier this year we provided new business opportunities to over 5,000 businesses in branches across the country under the “Show your Business” initiative. We also held over 60 events, featuring a range of speakers relevant to the SME community. This included successful entrepreneurs such as Bobby Kerr (Dragons’ Den), mentors like ex-rugby player Frankie Sheehan and industry experts like Rick Kelley (Facebook). This year, there will a number of events across the country, and once more we’re inviting local businesses to promote their businesses throughout Bank of Ireland branches nationwide. By promoting your products and services in your local branch you have a great opportunity to reach out to the public and let them know about you, your business and what you are all about.

Given the current economic climate it is now more important than ever to focus on our emerging entrepreneurs and the innovative work that they are doing. The annual David Manley Emerging Entrepreneur awards do exactly that. The aim of the awards is to successfully highlight potential entrepreneurs and to help them accelerate their plans.
The late David Manley was president of the Dublin Chamber of Commerce and Chair of Business of Arts. He was incredibly active in the business and entrepreneur communities and involved himself in as many organisations as possible. In addition, he championed a number of extremely important causes as CEO of the Not For Profit Business Association. These awards reflect his energies and commitment to innovation and excellence in business.
Bank of Ireland is delighted to announce that it is once again sponsoring the hit business reality programme Dragons' Den which is now coming into its third series on RTE ONE. The Irish Dragons are successful entrepreneurs and business leaders who have been there, done that. This year will see the introduction of brand new Dragon Norah Casey, who will join Gavin Duffy, Bobby Kerr, Sean Gallagher and Niall O'Farrell in the Den. Crucially, it will be the Dragons' own hard earned cash on the table. These are shrewd business people who have heard it all before and who are not afraid to say 'no' in the harshest of terms. But if they spot an idea with that extra special something, they and they alone will have the power to make dreams come true and invest money from their own pockets. read more
