A €241,000 cash injection has been approved by Fingal’s Local Enterprise Office through a number of its grant schemes aimed at supporting small businesses.
The 21 small businesses and start-ups that were approved for financial supports this quarter by the Local Enterprise Office Fingal are poised to create almost 60 new jobs – 20 of them immediately.
Included in this interesting group of businesses is an online subscription service for dog owners delivering a range of treats each month, a state-of-the-art lab facility that delivers optical frames and lenses to independent opticians, a business that re-unites lost property with its owner anywhere in the world, a business that produces innovative waterproof membrane products for large scale construction, a food company that developed a range of gourmet granola cups and a business that manufactures craft products based on mythical Irish folklore, for online and retail.
Head of Enterprise Oisin Geoghegan said: “Financial supports can be crucial in helping start-ups to flourish in their first year of operation and existing small businesses to grow.
“This month we have a range of exciting new and expanding small businesses that have great potential to create further jobs in Fingal in the coming years.”
