The call is open for ambitious female entrepreneurs who are looking to scale their businesses to join the latest cycle of Going for Growth, the award-winning business development programme.
Going for Growth is a six-month part-time programme, sponsored by Enterprise Ireland and KPMG, which assists ambitious female entrepreneurs to achieve their growth aspirations.
The programme is seeking applications from female entrepreneurs – across all sectors – who are strongly focussed on growth. Ideally, businesses should be well established and trading for at least two years.
Sixty places will be available for this 11th cycle of Going for Growth, which will run from January to June 2018 and the deadline for applications is Wednesday, November, 28th. There is no charge for those selected. Anyone interested is encouraged to register their interest in receiving an application form at goingforgrowth.com.
One past participant is Mary O’Brien, CEO and co-founder of online medical service videoDoc, which has gone from no employees when she joined Going for Growth to 32 staff in Dublin and London, with plans to double this in the next six to 12 months.
Some of this year’s Lead Entrepreneurs include: Louise Phelan, Paypal, Fidelma McGuirk, Payslip and Marian O’Gorman of The Kilkenny Group. Previous participants are ambassadors of the benefits for Going for Growth and several now volunteer their time as Lead Entrepreneurs, including: Marissa Carter, founder of Carter Beauty, Nikki Evans, founder of PerfectCard, and Oonagh O’Hagan, owner of Meagher’s Pharmacy Group.
