Reboot: Training and networking opportunities for local businesses

It has been an extraordinarily challenging eighteen months for businesses and social enterprises in Roscommon, Mayo and Sligo. As we emerge and businesses struggle to make sense of a post-Covid and Brexit environment Reboot can help.

Reboot is a South West Mayo Development Company, LEADER initiative aimed at businesses and social enterprises in Roscommon, Mayo and Sligo.

Reboot is a co-operative collaboration designed to assist the recovery of rural businesses and social enterprises in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic and Brexit economic disruption. A programme of free tailored training, skills development, expert one to ones and networking opportunities will be offered in Roscommon, Mayo and Sligo.

Reboot has identified three critical areas to assist businesses/social enterprises/community groups post covid. These include online marketing (e-commerce and e-marketing supports), adapting your business for future opportunities and challenges, and minimising risks and optimising health and safety

Over the course of the next eighteen months, organisations can access tailored training courses, get expert advice and tips on a one to one basis, and have the opportunity to network with their peers at organised events where they can share experiences and address challenges they face.

Speaking at the launch today, Sue O’Toole (SWMDC Senior LEADER Enterprise Officer) said: “We are excited to launch Reboot to support our rural business and social enterprises in Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo. It is a great opportunity for businesses, offering free training, expert one to ones and strategic networking across key issues facing organisations after eighteen months of disruption. Reboot aims to foster resiliency, agility, cost management, innovation, health and safety and to maximise online sales/social media presence. Reboot activities are available to any business or social enterprise based in Mayo, Roscommon or Sligo, and all the courses are free to participants”.
