Building Financial Capabilities in SMEs Programme

The Building Financial Capabilities in SMEs programme is designed to help business owners improve their capabilities when raising finance for their firm.  The programme provides information on sources of finances for SMEs and how banks assess credit applications.

The two full day programme is supported by a business mentor with two one-to-one sessions following each workshop.  The programme is available at various locations throughout Ireland.

The programme cost is €250 (ex VAT) per person and is heavily subsidised through ManagementWorks.  The cost includes all training, mentoring, course materials and refreshments.

Courses will commence in February in Dundalk, Galway City, Castlebar, Cork, Stillorgan and Dublin City Centre.  Further locations and information is available on
