RDJ and BKK Advisory have joined forces with Republic of Work and MGFD Digital Marketing Consultancy to provide a welcomed boost to the start-up community in Cork. The group is offering ten growing businesses the opportunity to access a network of industry-leading entrepreneurs and professionals who will share valuable expertise and experience of growing successful ventures.

The 6-week programme will include training, networking and support for companies looking to develop growth strategies, build value, write significant sales, marketing and business plans, and establish strong brands. Participants will work directly with a committed team of advisors, accountancy, legal, digital marketing, brand, and IT, professionals on some of the fundamental skills and knowledge required to grow successful business ventures.

The Launch Partnership Programme is suited to entrepreneurs at idea development or market stage who are looking to access advice on setup or growth of their business. At the end of the programme, participants will have the opportunity to use learnings gained from the programme to participate in a competition where each will be afforded the opportunity to “pitch” their business to a panel of professionals and investors for a Launch scale-up support prize to the value of €25,000. This will include the provision of advice and access to a professional network to support the launch/development of their business over the following 12 months.
