Bank of Ireland launches ‘Enterprise Town’ initiative in Kells

  • Looking to drive business momentum in Meath

Bank of Ireland today (Friday 11 October 2013) announced that it has launched a new ‘Enterprise Town’ initiative in conjunction with the business community in Kells .  The initiative, which the Bank is supporting to the tune of €25,000, aims to promote and drive business momentum for SMEs in the locality.

Commenting on the initiative, Mary Rohan, Branch Manager, Bank of Ireland, Kells said:  “We are very excited at launching our first ‘Enterprise Town’ in Kells earlier this week.  We had a very productive meeting with the local business community which warmly welcomed our proposal.  The task that we have set ourselves is to come up with a number of ideas and actions that will help energise the enterprise culture in the town in order to drive business momentum.

“Our focus over the coming weeks and indeed months is to consider what are the key initiatives that will feed into our overall objective that will make this a resounding success in the community.  Hence our next steps are to come up with a list of enterprise ideas that will work for both the business and wider community in Kells .  We are currently working through a number of suggestions and hope to finalise shortly on those which we believe will best support our objectives.

“Bank of Ireland has been delighted at the initial response to this initiative and already there is much talk around the town on the potential that this has to help drive increased activity for local enterprises.  The Bank has been an active participant in this community for a very long time and our future success is intrinsically linked with the success of the local community.

“We would encourage all local businesses to engage with this initiative.  Our next steps are to agree the date for submission of ideas/plans that will fit into our ‘Enterprise Town’ objective and to then get them up and running quickly. We would welcome hearing from anyone in the Kells area that would like to put forward an idea for consideration”, concluded Mary Rohan.
