Launch of REBOOT - Driving Business

REBOOT is a LEADER initiative supported by the Local Enterprise Office.

REBOOT launches a range of relevant training and networking opportunities for businesses and their staff

It has been an extraordinarily challenging 18 months for businesses and social enterprises in Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo.  As we emerge and businesses struggle to make sense of a post-Covid and Brexit environment REBOOT can help.

REBOOT training and networking will prioritise resiliency, agility, cost management, innovation, health and safety and sales.  All critically important to business.

REBOOT is a South West Mayo Development Company, LEADER initiative aimed at businesses and social enterprises in Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo.

 

Aim of the REBOOT Programme:

Reboot is a co-operative collaboration designed to assist the recovery of rural businesses and social enterprises in the aftermath of the Covid19 pandemic and Brexit economic disruption.  Reboot will provide a programme of FREE tailored training, skills development, expert 1:1s and networking opportunities in Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo.

Reboot has identified 3 critical areas to assist businesses/social enterprises/community groups post C19:

  • Online Marketing, e-commerce and e-marketing supports
  • Adapting your business for future opportunities and challenges
  • Minimising risks and optimising Health & Safety

Over the course of the next 18 months, organisations can access tailored training courses, get expert advice and tips on a 1:1 basis, and have the opportunity to network with their peers at organised events where they can share experiences and address challenges they face.
