PAGE_ENTERPRISE_200 Since 1991 we have been helping local people to get started in business. We have aided in setting up new retail ventures, we have helped tradesmen to become self-employed, and we have guided locals in setting up ventures within the service industry.

Our specialist Enterprise Development Officer is based in St James’ Presbytery, just off James’ Street in Dublin 8, so if you would like to set up a business or become self-employed, you can ring us on (01) 454 6753 to set up a free consultation.

Please note: All of the Enterprise services which are listed on this page are provided completely free of charge. This project has been a flag ship for the organisation and is done in co-operation between the Department of Social Welfare and Larkin Centre North Strand. Since this service’s inception we have aided over 2210 clients on their way to starting their own successful business.

Cheap hi-quality websites built for BTWEA recipients!Special offer – cheap hi-quality websites built for BTWEA recipients!
In association with Solid Website Design, we have negotiated a 33% discount – for all BTWEA recipients – to have their website or online stores built. There is an entry level five page website which can be made for just €300, but if you require a larger website, the discount also applies. And you will not even need to dip into your cashflow to pay for this, because it can be financed through your €1000 start-up grant. Everybody who is on the BTWEA scheme is entitled to this grant, and it can be used for various purposes, including marketing your business or attending a suitable course which is related to your business.
