Fintrax entrepreneur Gerry Barry and SCCUL Entrepreneurship Award winners Channel Mechanics will be the keynote speakers at a seminar for SMEs in the Clayton Hotel on Wednesday 26 June at 6pm.
Titled ‘Galway Entrepreneurs Share Success Stories’, the seminar will hear from successful Galway based entrepreneurs who will discuss their business experience and offer practical advice for business owners.
The event is organised by SCCUL Mentors, an initiative established by SCCUL Enterprises to provide mentoring support to start-up and existing business owners.
Also speaking at the event is Hazel Hendy, a mentor with SCCUL Mentors, who will review the success of the mentoring programme to date and outline future plans. MC for the event will be Philip Furlong, deputy manager of St Columba’s Credit Union.
Chairman of SCCUL Enterprises, Padraig O’Callaghan said the seminar would offer business owners a unique opportunity to hear success stories from different stages of the business life cycle
“Fintrax founder Gerry Barry saw a niche business opportunity and developed a highly successful business, which he sold last year. Channel Mechanics – an early stage business – is continuing to make the headlines for winning not only the SCCUL Entrepreneurship Awards but more recently the Ulster Bank Business Achievers Awards.
“Clearly these entrepreneurs have wonderful stories to tell and experiences to share that may help other businesses. SCCUL Mentors exists to provide access to pro bono business expertise and wisdom and we are delighted that both gentlemen are giving of their time to present at this seminar.”
