Prosper Series

The Prosper Series is an initiative created by the Guinness Enterprise Centre in 2017. Our mission for Prosper is to develop a network of support among different county's business diasporas to enhance prosperity in these county's through co-operation, knowledge sharing, creativity, inspiration and a stronger entrepreneurial ecosystem. The Prosper Series has since launched in Kerry, Limerick and Cavan.

The format of the event involves early-stage companies presenting to key decision-makers looking to support economic development in their county.
