Over 55,000 users of ‘Supporting SMEs’ campaign in its first year
Over 55,000 businesses and entrepreneurs have now availed of the Government’s ‘Supporting SMEs’ campaign, which was launched a year ago.
The campaign is made up of three components – an online tool, marketing of the campaign and outreach to small businesses via events across the country.
The online tool brings together over 80 Government business supports from over 30 departments and agencies in one website.
To date, 56,390 sessions have taken place on the platform, by 46,690 unique users, who receive a list of potential supports after answering eight simple questions.
Over the past year, 13 new Government supports were added to it, including the Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland, the new Tender Advisory Service for SMEs launched by the Office of Government Procurement and a range of new green initiatives run by Enterprise Ireland and the Environmental Protection Agency.
To mark the one year anniversary and to ensure more Irish businesses know about the Supporting SMEs Online Tool, the campaign is issuing over 150,000 campaign leaflets to over 800 public locations across the country.
In relation to events, the campaign team has spoken to entrepreneurs and small businesses at around 21 events during the year at locations across the country.
