PRESS RELEASE – Startup Gathering Event at E Bantry


Startup Gathering 2015 Event at E-Bantry

As part of the Start-up Gathering 2015, E-Bantry Enterprise Centre is planning an Open Morning to showcase the facilities and supports available at the Centre to start-up businesses in the area. The Open Morning will take place on Thursday 8th October from 10:00-13:00, and will offer members of the community the opportunity to learn more about the superb facilities at E Bantry. E-Bantry staff will be available to offer tours and information on how E Bantry can help new businesses. Refreshments will be provided, and visitors will have an opportunity to meet other small businesses already based in the Centre.

E Bantry is part of a network of 8 E Centres across County Cork, offering office space & other supports to entrepreneurs, in a shared environment. The E Centres’ initiative works with local communities in towns and villages all over Cork County to provide facilities for local people to start and grow their business.

E-Bantry’s hotdesk facilities provide a low-cost, low commitment solution to those who are starting a business, without the inconvenience or expense of opening a new office or taking out a long-term lease. The Centre offers highspeed broadband, direct dial telephones, as well as all of the services arranged.

The E-Centres’ initiative is funded through Cork County Council’s Economic Development Fund, which assists business development and employment creation in the County. Further information on E Centres is available from Julie Crowley at 026-20520 or at

The Open Morning at E-Bantry is one of 350 events taking place across the country to mark the Start-up Gathering 2015. In Cork, more than 50 events will celebrate entrepreneurs as change makers and job creators, in the hope of rallying the entire Cork business community, to support startups and make Cork a great startup hub.
