Local Enterprise Week


Local Enterprise Week

2nd – 6th March

In conjunction with Local Enterprise Week 2020, a number of events took place at Cavan Digital Hub. Local Enterprise Week entails hundreds of events across all Local Enterprise Offices across the country- all designed to develop business growth. We have close links with our Local Enterprise Office in Cavan who themselves had a full schedule of events for the week: from talks on Business Growth & Profitability in the Border Region to a Start Your Own Business Programme. We offered to collaborate with them on some key events.
For the week that was in it Cavan Digital Hub opened out our monthly Bosses Breakfast Meeting to other business owners. We collaborated with the Local Enterprise Office Cavan and Bank of Ireland Cavan to provide an informative session on Financial Well-Being in Business.

Bank of Ireland’s Financial Well-Being Coach, Lucia McCauley, spoke to Cavan Digital Hub clients and other guests on how setting themselves up to be financially sound is key to success in business. Personal banking, lending do’s and don’ts, and futureproofing were just some of the key points discussed. Breakfast was served in our Innovation Suite and guests were invited to dine as Lucia presented. There was then ample time for a Q & A session, followed by networking.

Collaborative, informative, and an opportunity to network with peers; and all before your working day starts!

Another key event that took place at Cavan Digital Hub during Local Enterprise Week was the Kilmore National School Hackathon. Hub clients Glic-Tech and Apridata came together to collaborate on this event for the senior students of this small local school. Over 40 students attended the Hub for the Hackathon. Taking one group at a time every student got a tour of the Hub and a chance to try out all fancy chairs and meeting areas!

Credit to both teams at Glic-Tech and Apridata for truly inspiring the next generation of tech experts. We look forward to housing and supporting some of these students at a future date.

Grow your business with the supports that Cavan Digital Hub can offer.
