This Thrive Programme is being delivered for small businesses in the Kilkenny and Carlow region.
Thrive involves 7 different types of support ongoing over a 2 year period. This programme has been designed to support small business owners through the challenges they will face in the first two years of business.
WHO IS IT FOR? Entrepreneurs and small business owners who are trading and in the early stages of their business.
Full day Business Bootcamp events are a highly facilitated opportunity for entrepreneurs to take a pitstop from their business to set and check in on business goals. This process helps drive clearer and more effective thinking to ensure that the business stays on track for success by maximising opportunities and strategically tackling oncoming challenges.
The half day skill workshops are delivered in: sales, marketing, legal, finance, HR, IT for business and other topics to ensure entrepreneurs have the up to date knowledge they need in these key business areas.
It is vital that business owners invest time in their own leadership and personal development in addition to developing functional skills for business such as sales, marketing and finance. This mastermind format of training ensures business owners develop in key areas crucial to the success of the business and that they are not an inhibitor to the growth of the business.
