Despite the fact that the meeting was promoted less than a week beforehand, there were five great local entrepreneurs in attendance! The discussion section of the meeting was extremely popular and some very helpful ideas were shared. A number of the entrepreneurs have arranged to meet up and explore collaboration further before the next meeting on the 12th of February takes place which is fantastic.
Just a few of the positive excerpts from the meeting are below:
- Gerry Honan of ‘BodyByVi’ connected with a likeminded network marketer at the meeting and they are sure they can help each other achieve more success. Gerry also saw potential in making connections with other Entrepreneur Cafe members worldwide as his company wants to launch their products in Spain, Portugal, Italy and even further afield.
- Joan Power www.skillsulike.com discovered that one of the other members could help her populate her website with more contractors (her target market)
- Katja Quilty ‘Coco Bella Skin Care’ has a very successful range of skin care products and also saw potential to promote her products to a global audience via Entrepreneur Cafe. She is also looking for a good retail location in Waterford for her products. The ‘team’ eCafe Waterford are now looking at helping with this.
- Rita Akinfenwa and Ifeoma Nwali are just about to launch and exciting new energy recycling company here in Ireland. There is huge potential with this opportunity as it solves some major environmental issues while generating clean energy and reducing costs for businesses.
The meeting was very positive and some excellent ideas were generated from it.
