Later this month, the new Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs) will be established countrywide and they will become the 31 First-Stop-Shops for new entrepreneurs and existing micro and small business owners at local level.
In preparation for the new support structure, a new LEO website, comprising a gateway and 31 sub sites, has been designed. The design and development of the new website is a key component of the roll out of the LEOs and the project will deliver a powerful resource which will ensure that a level of web capability is available to all LEOs in the country. The website will incorporate signposting to other Government schemes, including a self-assessment tool for access to finance, as well as how to guides etc. The website will go live when the LEOs are launched in mid-April.
