Cork Innovates are thrilled to announce that we have won the Excellence in Local Government Support Services to Business award as part of Public Sector Magazine’s annual Excellence in Business awards. Outlining the reasoning behind their decision, Public Sector Magazine wrote:
With 2014 designated as the Year of Jobs, the challenge is on for local enterprise to promote local support services for business growth in their area. In this regard, Cork Innovates set the bar high with a thorough and well-planned approach.
Project Director Siobhán Finn, responded:
The Cork Innovates model has made a significant impact in promoting an entrepreneurial spirit within the Cork Community. As a group, Cork Innovates is firmly committed to building on the entrepreneurial environment through mutual engagement and alignments with external stakeholder groups supporting entrepreneurs and the extended business community. Recognising and rewarding imaginative and successful initiatives which are formed using a tri-partied approach between public and private sector and third level institutions reinforces this best practice approach to providing a robust and actively engaged approach for our entrepreneurs.
