Now in its 9th year, the Kerry Month of Enterprise (KMOE) takes place annually in March and is a month-long celebration of Enterprise activities that take place across County Kerry throughout the year. A series of events organised during the month of March gives established businesses and budding entrepreneurs an opportunity to network and discover the assistance available to them in growing and sustaining a business in Kerry.
The month is a collaborative initiative between Munster Technological University, Kerry County Council, Kerry Local Enterprise Office, Enterprise Ireland, Udarás na Gaeltachta, North, East & West Kerry Development (NEWKD); South Kerry Partnership Development (SKDP), IRD Duhallow, and IDA Ireland. In addition, a number of enterprise events are hosted by industry partners.
The Kerry Month of Enterprise is also supported by media partners The Kerry’s Eye, The Kerryman, Radio Kerry, and CONNECT.
A spotlight on entrepreneurial activities
Starting a business can be daunting but the many supports available throughout the county are there to help and advise through the process. Inter-agency cooperation and coordination is strong in Kerry, creating a focused enterprise development strategy dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs. Through these collaborative organisations up and coming entrepreneurs can avail of mentoring, workshops networking, prototyping, market research and funding supports.
We look forward to welcoming and meeting you at the series of virtual and in-person events, brought to you by KMOE in March, and indeed throughout the year.
