in collaboration with Fingal County Council Community (CEH) and the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown (ITB) Civic Engagement function, have established the Fingal Community Enterprise Hub in the BASE Enterprise Centre in Mulhuddart.
The CEH is intended to act as a support hub in the administration of a variety of potential community based programmes, projects and initiatives focussed on employment, enterprise and ethnic integration.
The main aims of the Hub:
1. Enhancing engagement with the local community in Dublin 15;
2.Developing social inclusion through enterprise and entrepreneurship;
3.To provide information to the local community on a range of enterprise and employment supports.
Entrepreneurship is not only about the creation of a new business but also about a mind-set, a way thinking and doing that is beyond simply managing a business. Therefore, if people understood that entrepreneurship is a way of thinking and of doing, and encompasses developing behaviours that incorporate opportunity recognition, gathering resources, and building a team, then perhaps more people would believe that they were capable of entrepreneurial activity. Enterprise development support dedicated to the Dublin 15 community will help achieve this.
