The Prosper Series

The Prosper Series is a GEC initiative to create a network of support among a county’s business diaspora to enhance prosperity in the county through co-operation, knowledge sharing, creativity, inspiration, engagement and the creation of a stronger entrepreneurial ecosystem. We have successfully established the Prosper Series in Kerry and Limerick and preparations are in place for Prosper Donegal, Cavan, Cork and Galway.

The format of the event involves early-stage companies pitching to key decision-makers looking to support economic development in their county. The overall objective of the network is to provide advice and mentoring on tackling start-up challenges including business growth, investment or network development.
