Prosper Series - “Your County is your Business”

Following on from the continued success of the Prosper Series in Kerry, the Guinness Enterprise Centre is delighted to expand the program into another county: Prosper Limerick.

Prosper Limerick 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.

Prosper Limerick is leading the way in building a network for the Limerick diaspora who can provide a wealth of advice, knowledge and mentoring for businesses in the county on tackling key start-up challenges including access to markets, growing the business and connecting the entrepreneurs’ with potential investors.
