Promoting entrepreneurship and facilitating the key infrastructural needs of Irish enterprise across all regions is vital to ensuring a vigorous pipeline of new business leaders, new business ideas and innovative products and services. Enterprise Ireland is heavily focused on facilitating entrepreneurship and the enterprise environment in local and rural communities, on driving the creation of innovation based start-ups and on proactively developing companies in all regions. Enterprise Ireland`s strategy is designed to ensure that opportunities for Irish enterprises and entrepreneurs are maximised throughout all regions and that relevant support is provided to meet the increasing challenges faced in the global marketplace. Enterprise Ireland is focused on working with the LEO`s and Business Innovation Centres to provide a seamless continuum of support for Irish business, matching their needs with the best resources available. LEOs are located in the Local Authorities charged with the promotion of entrepreneurship and supporting micro businesses (10 or less employees) at local level. Established in 2014 the LEOs have been extremely successful in supporting the establishment and development of businesses at local level and in creating a positive and supportive environment for entrepreneurship to develop and thrive.
