Minister Bruton publishes Entrepreneurship Forum Report

Government aims to better support start-ups - who create two thirds of all new jobs across economy

The Report of the Entrepreneurship Forum was launched today (Thursday) by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD and Chair of the Forum, entrepreneur and Investor Sean O’ Sullivan together with Minister of State for Small Business John Perry TD.

The Forum was established as part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs 2013. Given that two thirds of all new jobs across the economy are created by businesses in the first five years of existence, the Government is determined to look at new ways of providing supports for entrepreneurs and start-ups.

69 recommendations have been put forward by the Forum in their Report. Many of the recommendations require Government action, but there are also recommendations aimed at businesses, entrepreneurs and industry representative bodies to engage them in building a stronger entrepreneurial culture in Ireland.

Included in the Report’s recommendations are a national education strategy for entrepreneurship at all levels of the education system.
