A fortnight-long series of networking sessions, workshops, debates and information clinics aimed at promoting, exploring and celebrating business and entrepreneurship in Mid and East Antrim is continues – and there is another action packed week ahead.
Enterprise Fortnight commenced on Monday 12 and will run until Saturday 24 November, with a programme of free events designed to unlock and capitalise on our entrepreneurial potential.
The initiative is being led by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, in partnership with business support organisations across the Borough.
Industry specialists, local entrepreneurs and support agencies are available to ensure that the aspirations of our local budding entrepreneurs and businesses are realised.

“It has been brilliant to spend time with our business leaders and budding young and newly founded entrepreneurs in Mid and East Antrim.
“We have so much potential and ambition and Enterprise Fortnight is delivering on its aim of educating, supporting and helping to develop and grow opportunities and economic growth throughout our Borough.
“There are still plenty of exciting events planned in the coming days and we look forward to welcoming everybody along.”
Alderman Greg McKeen, Chair of Council’s Economic Growth and Tourism Committee, said: “I would like to thank the partner organisations who have worked successfully with council to develop this exciting programme of events to celebrate Enterprise Fortnight 2018.
“Growing the economy is our number one strategic priority and by continuing to work closely with our partners we are ideally positioned to help develop opportunities to create jobs, support growth of new and existing businesses to develop skills and employment opportunities.
“It continues to be an exciting time and delivery of events such as these tabled through Enterprise Fortnight 2018 clearly evidences that Mid and East Antrim is open for business.”
