CIDO are delighted to once again be involved in Enterprise Week which this year will take place from 12 to 16 November. We would encourage businesses and entrepreneurs across the borough of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon to get involved in this enterprising initiative.

With the theme of ‘Inspire, Innovate and Invest’, Enterprise Week will provide information, services and programmes to help build a strong thriving economy.

Spearheaded by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council and sponsored by Bank of Ireland, the week-long programme will see a range of inspirational and informative events take place across the borough, demonstrating council’s commitment to nurturing and developing the local economy.

With drop-in clinics, workshops, information seminars and networking events offering support and guidance on a range of business matters such as: financial advice, using immersive technologies to better market your business, and driving diversification and innovation, as well as hearing first-hand experiences from industry-respected guest speakers, there  will be something for everyone.

Aimed at the whole business sector from the budding entrepreneurs right through to the well-established firms, the initiative will also showcase local success stories and give businesses easy access to funders, advisors and support programmes.

On Monday 12 November, CIDO Innovation Centre will kick off the week by hosting.’Marketing Your Product Using Immersive Technology’ which will take place from 10a.m. – 2p.m. Technology specialists will share their expertise in augmented reality, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, 360 video & connected devices and explore how these technologies can help you promote your business.

Coinciding with Global Entrepreneurship Week – which is now in its 11th year – Enterprise Week recognises and commends the innovators and job creators who launch start-ups and bring new ideas to life. In celebration of this, CIDO Ltd along with the other local enterprise agencies, Banbridge District Enterprise Ltd, Mayfair Business Centre, Armagh Business Centre and Brownlow Ltd will be hosting drop-in clinics and offering advice and guidance on programmes which help turn business ideas into reality.
