Launch of Enterprise Ireland New Frontiers Programme at LIT Cements Institute’s Role as Home of Enterprise in the Mid-West

Participants being inducted onto Enterprise Ireland’s New Frontiers programme at LIT today (Monday, September 26th) were told that they are joining the home of enterprise in the Mid-West.

LIT will be running Enterprise Ireland’s New Frontiers programme for the next 5 years in the Mid-West. Companies on the LIT New Frontiers programme in 2015/2016 raised over €5 million, and have helped create almost 200 jobs.

Speaking to participants at their induction onto the programme at the Hartnett Enterprise Acceleration Centre in LIT, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell-O’Connor said,

“Supports such as the Enterprise Ireland New Frontiers programme are all the more crucial now in the current trading environment where companies need to be all the more competitive. I would urge anyone with a business idea to consider applying to this important entrepreneur development programme".

Vice President for Research Enterprise and Development at LIT, Dr. Liam Brown, said

“New Frontiers is the national entrepreneurship programme for early stage high-potential start-up companies. It is a tremendously important programme for enterprise and entrepreneurship in the Mid-West, and we in LIT are particularly proud of our role in the programme.
“I wish our latest participants the very best in their efforts, and we look forward to providing them with the support and infrastructure they need to succeed.
