Entrepreneurship

People opt to start their own business for a wide variety of reasons, from losing their job, to wanting more autonomy and flexibility or for the thrill of going it alone and getting rich quick! Some people simply have a good idea and a belief that they can make that idea work.

Whatever the reason, there are lots of supports available to help you along the way. The following links provide valuable information on starting a business in Ireland:
