A new cycle of Going for Growth has been announced and they are now calling ambitious women entrepreneurs to participate.
Going for Growth is open to women entrepreneurs, across all sectors, whose main business is located in the Republic of Ireland. Whatever the size of the business at present, the application will be considered if a strong growth ambition can be demonstrated. They are seeking about 60 women entrepreneurs to participate. As previously, there will be no cost to suitable candidates.
To be considered suitable for participation, the entrepreneur should already be the owner manager of a business of which she is a major shareholder and key influencer. Suitable applicants need to demonstrate significant aspiration for growth and should be working full time on the business. It is expected that the business will have been trading for at least two years. Only in exceptional cases will a business at an earlier stage be considered. Applications from those who have been trading for a shorter period must demonstrate that the product/service is highly innovative in nature, has a longer development cycle than the norm and has exceptional growth potential.
This cycle of Going for Growth is being supported by Enterprise Ireland and by KPMG.
If this description fits someone you know, and you would like them to be considered for inclusion in the forthcoming cycle, then please ask them to register their interest on the website www.goingforgrowth.com and we will send them out an application form.
Please note that the final date for receipt of completed application forms is 25th November 2015. If you are encouraging people to register and apply, please do so immediately so that they don’t miss the deadline.
