March 30th, 2010
In May 2009, Bank of Ireland launched their first National Enterprise Week. We hosted over 120 events throughout the week, and more than 1000 businesses participated in functions and events throughout the country.
Following the success of this initiative, we are delighted to announce that our 2010 National Enterprise Week will commence on Monday, 24th May, coinciding with the European SME Week. The overarching objective for this week is to lift the spirit of entrepreneurship in Ireland, by providing businesses with the opportunity to network, and meet with other businesses and experts that can support their business.
National Enterprise Week is the first ever national campaign focussed solely on the business community. In these challenging times it is important that businesses can seek advice and support from all parts of the local community. Bank of Ireland is at the centre of this community and is leading this charge.
National Enterprise Week is about:
Providing an opportunity for businesses to meet with leading industry experts, and learn from their experiences
Hosting networking events so that businesses can grow their local and national networks
Giving businesses the support to become more innovative and focused on the future
Lifting the spirit of entrepreneurship in Ireland
Encouraging people who are thinking about setting up a business to go to the right places for the right ideas.
Show Your Business
Show Your Business is the part of National Enterprise Week that lets you get straight to the heart of the community, by promoting your products and services in your local Bank of Ireland branch. It’s a great opportunity to reach out to the public and let them know about your business.
What else is happening?
Local events – we will host a number of events throughout the country, giving you the opportunity to gather free advice and support, network with other local businesses and discuss ways in which we can all help to get business moving.

We look forward to seeing you during National Enterprise Week!
