Derry City & Strabane District Council has officially launched Enterprise Week and this year the event will focus on business innovation.
Local entrepreneurs can learn more about making innovation a core part of their business through a new innovation accreditation programme.
‘Innovate NI’ is a Department for the Economy initiative, helping local businesses to innovate successfully and will be showcased at the opening event of Enterprise Week 2020 at the Millennium Forum on Monday March 2nd.
It is delivered by Invest Northern Ireland, local councils and further education colleges.
The programme is raising awareness and providing practical advice about what innovation is and highlighting the value and importance of it for business growth and competitiveness.
The 2020 Enterprise Week will focus on innovation and growth and will build on the excellent work done to date in assisting business start-ups and encouraging existing businesses to look at new ways to develop and enhance their business.
A host of experts will be on hand during Enterprise Week 2020 to offer young entrepreneurs and seasoned businesses alike advice on business planning, marketing their business and procurement.
The five day programme of mentoring, advice and networking will also highlight the services and support available to local SME’s and start-ups throughout the Council area – as well as provide a selection of ‘FREE’ events and workshops tailored to inspire and inform.
