Derry City and Strabane District Council in partnership with Enterprise North West and Strabane Enterprise Agency will host ‘Go For It Programme’ Open Evenings on Thursday 28th February (6pm – 8pm) as part of a NI council wide initiative for anyone thinking about starting their own business.

This project is part funded by Invest Northern Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund under the Investment for Growth & Jobs Northern Ireland (2014-2020) Programme.

Derry City and Strabane District Council has joined forces with council areas across Northern Ireland aimed at providing would-be entrepreneurs with the chance to speak to a business advisor about their business idea and how the Go For It Programme can help them.

Councillor John Boyle, Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, said: “Enterprise North West and Strabane Enterprise Agency have vast experience in helping budding entrepreneurs in the Derry City and Strabane District Council area turn their dreams of owning their own business into a reality.

“We would encourage anyone who has an idea for a business to come along and meet an experienced business advisor for a free, no-obligation opportunity to discuss how the Go For It Programme can really help their business idea take off.

The Go For It programme is delivered free of charge by a team of experienced business mentors through Northern Ireland’s wide network of enterprise agencies. It combines expert advice with help to develop a robust business plan to turn ideas into a commercial enterprise.
