As Chairman of the Kerry County Enterprise Board Ltd. and Kerry County Council Manager, I am delighted to be involved with Innovate Kerry in producing this ‘Guide to Innovation Supports’.
This information is a valuable resource for people who have a business idea and are thinking about setting up a new business, or for those who already own a business.
We are acutely aware of the importance of fostering entrepreneurship in our County to ensure future growth and prosperity. Supporting and encouraging entrepreneurs to realise the potential of their ideas is central to this. entrepreneurship is a major driver of innovation, competitiveness and growth. It is the cornerstone of a modern economy and the lifeblood of thriving local communities.
The Council also recognises the importance of business relocation to the County. County Kerry welcomes international business and the Kerry diaspora seeking to return and establish businesses. Kerry County Council welcomes such business and is supportive of such initiatives.
Kerry County Council will continue to work in collaboration with other agencies, such as the County enterprise Board, ITT, LEADER groups, Shannon Developmen, Enterprise Ireland to encourage and support enterprise growth in our County.
Our website www.kerrycoco.ie carries a wealth of information on the services of the local authority.
