A new business networking body – the Roscommon Business Group – will be launched this evening.
This is a group which aims to provide a platform for small businesses in the county. The launch will take place at 7.30 pm this evening (Thursday, 7th) in Hannon’s Hotel in Roscommon town.
Roscommon senior football manager Anthony Cunningham, the special guest on the night, will officially launch the group while local public representatives are also expected to be in attendance.
A spokesperson said: “Roscommon Business Group has been set up to allow businesses in County Roscommon to network on a monthly basis, with each business also being featured on the group’s website.
“It is accepted that being self-employed can be quite difficult and the Roscommon Business Group hopes that by providing a platform for small businesses, there will be added support in areas such as problem solving and education.
“Training opportunities for members will also be a priority and is also hoped that the profile of each business is improved and enhanced as a result of their membership.
“In addition, Roscommon Business Group will work with local start-up ventures by providing advice and support into the future. The group intends to gather together monthly with meetings taking place on the first Thursday of the month and new members are always welcome”.
