The Prosper Series is a Guinness Enterprise Centre initiative that develops a network of entrepreneurial support among Ireland’s counties. This series specifically aims to enhance a county’s business diaspora through co-operation, knowledge sharing, creativity, and inspiration; ultimately creating a stronger entrepreneurial ecosystem. Each Prosper event involves early-stage companies presenting to key decision-makers from their same county who look to support economic development.
By creating a connected, world-class entrepreneurial environment, we empower businesses to grow and scale their enterprises.
The Prosper Series has since launched in Kerry, Limerick, and Cavan. With plans to expand into other counties and eventually, internationally, we aim to be one of Europe’s leading entrepreneurial superhubs. Check out highlights from Prosper Cavan below!

"As an early stage Kerry based business, the prosper Kerry event was an incredibly important event in our Start-up journey. We were afforded the opportunity to pitch our business to a crowd of incredibly well-connected business people from the county. This helped convey our current position and many people have reached out to help. We have made many important connections with other industries, who provided us with some amazing referrals. Ní neart go cur le chéile."

“In addition to having a unique opportunity for Acclino to present at the inaugural Prosper Limerick event at the GEC in January 2019, the event organisers arranged a one-to-one meeting for me with an established business investor who critiqued my business model and provided valuable advice on access routes to the USA market."
Damian Murphy, Acclino
"Taking part in Prosper Cavan was a massive stepping stone in launching our start-up. The event allowed us to grow our network, present to potential customers and gain feedback at what was a critical juncture for the business. Events like this that can connect a county with its diaspora are unique and create new opportunities for any businesses that take part."
