Small business owners with premises in Finglas and Ballymun can now avail of a new business advice service created by the Economic Development Officer of Dublin City Council in Ballymun, Liam Barry.

Liam describes the background to this service

“Small businesses have had a particularly tough time in the last two years. First, we had the effects of Brexit, and then the pandemic has disrupted the plans of many entrepreneurs.
We thought it would be a good idea to have a local advisory service targeted at enterprises between one and 50 employees.”

Free Business Advice

The Service

What it’s about?  Offering practical business advice and mentoring, and introducing business owners to further supports from LEO Dublin City, Dublin Northwest Partnership and other state-funded supports.

Being an online support makes it particularly convenient for owners of a small business. Advice via zoom is very flexible, and not location dependent.

The Advisers

“We have recruited a small panel of experienced business mentors who have expertise in business planning, marketing, digital marketing, financial planning – and advising on the day-to-day issues that all small business owners face.”

“Feedback is very positive”, says Liam, “from local businesses who have joined the scheme to date. And of course, members of B4b are especially welcome to avail of this confidential support.”
