Our aims are to
- help people new to Ireland to start their own businesses
- provide career mentoring, particularly in technology, finance and the arts
- leverage our relationships with multi-nationals and SMEs to connect people seeking sanctuary with those companies
We meet on the third Thursday of every month at 7.30pm. Please submit the form on the right to join Niamh, Byron and Muhamad to get an invite to the virtual meeting.
Support for new businesses establishing in Ireland
We share knowledge to support entrepreneurs in the critical early stages in a business, including support with company incorporation, business plans, social welfare entitlements, accounting, revenue requirements and with marketing, websites and social media.
We leverage our relationships with banks, insurance companies, Local Enterprise Offices and Social Welfare Offices so that we can leverage existing mainstream services and bring a particular understanding of the challenges faced by people recently arrived in Ireland, for example language and literacy issues, financial history etc.
Career Mentoring in Technology, Finance and other careers.
We support people seeking sanctuary with 1-1 mentoring to open up opportunities in education and career advancement. As part of this stream we work with migrants in Ireland and also people overseas with migrant/refugee/IDP backgrounds. We equip our clients with winning CVs and cover letters. Through internships we provide real world experience to prepare them for work in Ireland. Finally we assist with job searches online and through introductions.
Leverage our relationships built over years of working in business to connect migrants with opportunities
We engage with large Multi-National Enterprises and SMEs based in Ireland to connect people seeking sanctuary with opportunities in those companies.
