Foreword
    There has never been a better time to start, grow
    or locate your business in Limerick.

    Limerick City and County Council, through Limerick Twenty
    Thirty, has secured a total of €170m in loan funding from
    the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Council of
    Europe Development Bank (CEB). In addition Government
    funding of €1.8m from the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund, for enabling works on the
    Opera Site, will enable the application for planning permission to proceed in early 2019 and the
    development of the site to commence in 2019.

    In addition, Limerick City and County Council, through Innovate Limerick have secured funding of
    €2.279m for the development of a state-of the-Art Digital Collaboration Centre at ENGINE in Cecil
    Street Limerick.

    Limerick City and County Council are driving Economic Development in Limerick, in conjunction with
    the IDA and Enterprise Ireland, and in the small business sector by the Local Enterprise Office (LEO),
    Limerick.

    In Limerick in 2018 the Local Enterprise Office, through an investment of €800,000 by way of grant
    aid, supported the creation of an additional 155 new jobs in Limerick over the period 2018 – 2020.

    There is no doubt that home-grown business ideas that display innovation and creativity will enable
    us to grow jobs, challenge for market share and demonstrate our capability to adapt in a challenging
    global economic climate. We have to depend on our entrepreneurs to provide innovative products,
    processes and knowledge based solutions that will enable us to develop our local economy and
    enhance job creation.

    The development of Owner Managers of small businesses is seen as vital to the continued growth of
    the small business sector. In 2018 LEO Limerick invested €360,000 in training and development and
    other programmes to support the growth of business. This level of activity will continue in 2019 and
    the training and development programme has something for every small business to assist them in
    their development and growth.

    The supports for small business in Limerick are in place through the Local Enterprise Office and there
    has never been a better time to start, grow or locate your business in Limerick. Anyone considering
    starting a business venture or growing an existing small and micro business is encouraged to visit
    www.localenterprise.ie/limerick where they can learn more about the wide range of opportunities
    and supports being offered by LEO Limerick.
