Today, Friday 13th August, five members of the Challenge Europe Project (from Meath, Dublin, Belfast and the USA) will launch www.lowcarbonentrepreneurs.com, a new website providing the information entrepreneurs need to start new businesses that take advantage of the emerging green economy.
“This is an information portal that helps entrepreneurs explore the commercial possibilities of low carbon technologies. It provides an overview of the sector and provides links to more detailed information on funding and networking opportunities. Our goal is for the website to be a ‘one-stop-shop’ of information for would-be and existing entrepreneurs,” explains Andrea Carroll, one of the five founders.
Challenge Europe is a three year programme initiated by the British Council to encourage enterprising people from across Europe to create a project that makes a real difference to climate change. The five founders are working in the environment sector in Ireland. Challenge Europe is supported by Cultivate, Comhar Sustainable Development Council Ireland, Sustainable Development Commission Northern Ireland and Business in the Community Northern Ireland.
