Dungarvan Enterprise Centre Celebrates First Birthday

Dungarvan Enterprise Centre first opened its doors on 5th December 2011. In the past twelve months the centre has become a key player in the business landscape, offering a comprehensive range of services to the local business community. The centre is almost at full occupancy, with just one office space remaining free. 

The aim of Dungarvan Enterprise Centre is to stimulate and encourage enterprise in West Waterford, while acting as a support to the local business community. The centre achieves this through letting affordable office space, meeting room hire, training, mentoring and event management. The centre offers a number of free services to start-up and growing businesses including flyer display, promotion through our newsletter and social media sites, general business advice and facilitation of networking and seminars. The centre also offers affordable practical business training and has provided training in areas as diverse as social media, cloud computing, self-effectiveness, e-tendering and marketing over the last year. To date the centre has provided training to over 100 local businesses.

The office spaces at the centre are of a very high spec and are offered at affordable rates, starting at €180 per month including management fee and VAT. The centre also offers subsidised high speed broadband with speeds of up to 120mg and VOIP telephony, with built-in IT support. “We are delighted to have eight businesses on board to date, this equates to 18 people employed within the centre,” says Mags Durand O’Connor, centre manager, “We have also provided room hire to a variety of clients including FAS, LEADER and Waterford WEN, numbering over 200 people having accessed our facilities over the past year. We have been fortunate to work closely with Waterford County Enterprise Board, Dungarvan Chamber and Waterford County Council in our endeavours and we will continue to do so in our mission to find practical means of supporting business in the local community.”

The next big project for the centre is a Coder Dojo in association with Waterford County Enterprise Board, who are driving the initiative through their Student Enterprise Programme. This free programme which helps children to develop essential IT skills will be available from January. The centre has already received a generous donation of two laptops for the programme from TQS Integration and would ask any other businesses who might be able to donate old laptops to get in touch with the centre as it is the aim of the programme to be inclusive.

Three Canadian Students visit Dungarvan Enterprise Centre

Three students visited Dungarvan Enterprise Centre from Canada on Monday 26th November.  These students are part of the Tradewinds Student Exchange programme.  A mandatory module these students have to take as part of their semester in WIT is Enterprise and Regional development.

Tradewinds is an International Exchange program that provides students with an opportunity to acquire knowledge and competencies that support their future work in regional economic development, entrepreneurship and other contemporary subjects.  While studying abroad, students will be earning course credits at their exchange school that will easily transfer back to their diploma or degree program at their home school.

The Higher Education Institutions involved in Tradewinds are:

Fanshawe College, Ontario, Canada

University of Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada

Memorial University, Newfoundland, Canada

Brittany School of Management, Brest, France

University of Glamorgan, Wales

Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland

Enterprise and regional development are mandatory subjects for students on this programme.  As part of them getting a better appreciation of Ireland's enterprise policies and how enterprise copes in the current economic climate in Ireland it was decided to take them to visit a number of enterprises in the South East to talk to the owner/managers of these organisations.  Dungarvan Enterprise Centre was delighted to have a tenant chosen in this International Programme. Students visited Rosie Plummer Mansfield of TEFL to ask her about her enterprise, Ireland's enterprise policies, and how her enterprise copes in the current economic climate, etc

Speaking after the visit Rosie Plummer Mansfield said " I was delighted by the enthusiasm and interest from the visiting WIT students, it was a pleasure to introduce them to TEFL Express.  It's key to look at how companies can create success stories in recessionary times and for students to have access to real companies, not just text book examples"

What to ask a franchisor?

You have picked a franchise that interests you now you should put the franchisor in the "hot seat".  Getting the most out of your meetings with a franchisor is vital if you want to obtain the key information that will be the deciding factors on whether you choose a brand.

Among the information you will need to unearth is how long the franchisor has been posting profits, when did the company start franchising, how many franchise owners it has, and the speed at which the franchise network is growing.

Getting Started
You will want to know what you will receive for your investment.  Your initial training is likely to be included, but will it include staff training?  If you are starting out solo, you may employ staff as your business expands.  If so, will the franchisor require all staff to be trained by head office and, if this is the case, how much of this cost will fall on your business?

Setting boundaries
Another important consideration when investing in a franchise is the exclusivity of your franchise - is it a single unit or is it a territory within set boundaries.

Value for Money
In addition to your initial investment you will be expected to pay management service fees to the franchisor to provide you with support.  For instance, some franchisor's operate a sales department dedicated to generating initial business for their franchise owners from launch day. Alternatively, the franchisor may take total control of the sales process, providing you with a constant flow of business and leaving you to concentrate on providing the service.

Counting the Cost
This will involve quizzing the franchisor about how much working capital you will need, how long it will take for your business to break even and the growth level current franchise owners are achieving.  Ideally you should request that your accountant or bank manager check these figures out, but receiving a green light from these people is no assurance of success.  They are merely confirming the figures look fine on paper, not their precise knowledge of all the risk factors involved with your selected franchise opportunity.

Looking Ahead
After a few meetings with the franchisor you will have a good idea of your role in operating the franchise - whether you will be required to be hands-on in delivering the service or taking on a more managerial role.
You must ask yourself whether what you hear corresponds with your own goals, and then query whether you will be able to move into the latter category if you see yourself expanding the business at a later date.
Before making your final decision, make sure you clearly understand about the franchise you have chosen and about all the elements that make it a success.  This is why it is important to make your questions really matter to make your foray into franchising a success.

New Enterprise Centre to Bring Entrepreneurship to Main Street, Dungarvan

Significant Savings of €1.1million Made through Novel Approach take to Fund the Centre.

Mr Phil Hogan, Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government officially opened Dungarvan's Enterprise Centre on Friday. Speaking at the opening Minister Hogan commended the partnership between the local community, the local development agencies and private business that led to the provision of the Enterprise Centre the Main Street of the Town. The Enterprise Centre will provide office space, conference facilities and business mentoring services to business start-ups in West Waterford.

According to the Mayor of Dungarvan, Teresa Wright, 'a Community - Public - Private Partnership approach was taken to the development of the centre. The local community entered into a lease agreement with Glanbia, owners of the building, to develop it as an enterprise centre. The community then received grant aid from Waterford LEADER Partnership to make the building fit for use for start-up businesses in the town. This approach saved significant funding, and brings regeneration to Dungarvan Town Centre' Mayor Wright added.

Fearghal Reidy, Economic Development Officer at Waterford County Council explained how the savings were achieved. The original plan was to construct a €1.3million enterprise centre on the outskirts of Dungarvan. However, the community group was unable to raise the borrowings required to complete the project. They approached Glanbia, who own a vacant building on Main Street, Dungarvan, who agreed to enter into a lease agreement with the community to develop the enterprise centre. The costs reduced from €1.3million to €200,000 a saving of €1.1million, while still providing the same enterprise space and facilities.

'The beauty of this is three fold' stated Denis McCarthy, Waterford County Manager. 'It provides entrepreneurs with space required to start their businesses, it brings regeneration to the Main Street of Dungarvan, adding to the vibrancy of the Town and it is delivered in a cost effective way' Mr McCarthy highlighted that the enterprise centre is a key element of a five year economic plan that Waterford County Council is implementing. 'The plan is yielding real results, the Dungarvan centre is one of a network of Community Enterprise Centres in the County, including Dunhill, Cappoquin, Lismore, Tallow and the Innovation Centre at WIT'. Mr McCarthy thanked the voluntary committee who developed the centre. 'This centre is a fine example of the work of communities throughout the County'.

The Dungarvan Enterprise Centre is a one-stop-shop for business start-ups in County Waterford. The County Enterprise Board has already taken up offices at the Centre, and offers a range of financial supports and mentoring for eligible businesses. The Centre also received a grant from Enterprise Ireland to employ a Manager, Margaret Durand. Ms Durand has a marketing background, and is an experienced in business mentoring. 'The centre offers businesses start-ups with a great location in the heart of Dungarvan' stated Margaret. Offices are well specified, with CAT 5 telecommunications infrastructure. Offices, ranging in size, are available to let at very reasonable rates. 'We have devised a letting agreement that is not too onerous on businesses, who face enough bureaucracy when starting up. Businesses can also use the conference facilities and the full range of mentoring support that are available at the Centre' stated Ms Durand.

Speed Show Does the Business

Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber, in association with Waterford WEN, hosted the region's first 'Speed Show' on Tuesday 21st Feb at Dungarvan Enterprise Centre. The event was very well attended, with a wide variety of local businesses coming along to grab opportunities and share referrals.

The Speed Show marries two concepts; speed networking and show your business. Speed networking is a unique means of introducing your business to a large number of people in a short space of time through rapid dedicated one-to-one time with a number of different contacts. Based loosely around the idea of speed dating, speed networking sees business-owners move around a room sharing business cards and referrals with at least fifteen other businesses.

Show Your Business offers a two-minute showcase where a business owner can unashamedly promote their business to a captive audience. The speed show slots were assigned through a lottery which saw Tracy Quinlan of Evolve Training & Recruitment Centre, Karen Dempsey of Karen Dempsey Photography, Éimhín Ní Chonchúir of The Marketing Table, Emma Penruddock of iamofireland and David Walsh of Better Finance introduce their businesses to the attendees whilst benefitting from the opportunity to ask for specific referrals and state why you should buy from them.

"As a women's enterprise network, we enjoy working with Dungarvan Chamber to help broaden our network members' pool of contacts and help drive opportunities through the local business community,C says Mags Durand O'Connor, network manager, "we look forward to organising more events with Chamber as the year goes on."
