AN initiative has been launched by Connor Winfield Ltd to help entrepreneurs kick start businesses, with access to cost-price prototype development.
The initiative, in association with Irish Executives Network, will offer entrepreneurs developing electronic products the chance to have 20 prototypes manufactured at cost price.
They are also offering the chance for one entrepreneur to avail of free office accommodation for 12 months at the company’s facility in Shannon, Co Clare.
Connor Winfield Ltd managing director, John O’Connell, said the private sector has a role to play in the national recovery and they encourage other businesses to take on initiatives like this.
"We cannot remain spectators to the national drama in my opinion. We need to become actors and that is what we are seeking to do with this initiative," said Mr O’Connell.
