How did the Enterprise Action project assist your business?
When on the project I had the opportunity to work with a business consultant and attend networking events, business presentations/workshops and was also able to receive grants to assist the growth within my business. We were also given the chance to use the office space for meetings and work located in the Science Park. Things that many start-ups struggle to acquire when first starting a business due to funding.
What advice would you give to any potential business start-up about joining the Enterprise Action project?
Surround yourself with people who are like-minded, people you feel or know are smarter and are willing to help you better yourself. Be patient and stick at it, whatever you do, don’t let money be an obstacle and most of all make sure you are doing it for a deeper reason than financial gain because money comes and goes, but when you are passionate about what you are doing, it can last forever. Stay true to what you believe in, your visions are yours for a reason; don’t let anyone sway that. Ultimately if you want to go far you have to be willing to sacrifice, work hard, and be willing to go through the hard times and the rough patches because it’s not going to be easy.
