Global Business Opportunities for Irish SMEs through Local Enterprise Office partnership with EEN

On November 13th 2015, the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), the world’s largest support network for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) announced a new partnership with the 31 Local Enterprise Offices in Ireland. This means 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.
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.
As the first-stop shop for enterprise, the network of Local Enterprise Offices' role is to encourage a culture of entrepreneurship in Ireland.  In partnership with the Enterprise Europe Network, Local Enterprise Offices across the country can now support SMEs in becoming more knowledgeable and competitive in global markets, leading to greater international business opportunities.
Information on the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) can be found on the dedicated Irish website www.een-ireland.ie and the EU website www.een.ec.europa.eu
