Sixty five participants successfully completed the 11th cycle of Going for Growth in Dublin this week. They are on target to achieve a fourfold increase in annual sales over the next five years to €200million and expect to increase their collective employment from 500 to 2,000 people over this period.
With half of the participants currently exporting, a further 30% aim to export in the next five years. This group of ambitious women join over 600 other female entrepreneurs who have completed the programme.
Going for Growth, supported by KPMG and Enterprise Ireland, encourages ambitious female entrepreneurs to achieve their business goals through peer support, shared experiences and workshops, in a range of relevant areas including funding for growth and structuring the business to scale.
The latest group of female entrepreneurs on this cycle of the Going for Growth programme hope to create 1,500 new jobs over the next five years.
