What people are saying
Six years ago, it was almost impossible to get funding for social enterprises - ICE recognised this and did something about it - without their support we simply would not be here today. To anybody thinking of starting an enterprise I cannot recommend Evanne and the team enough.
Thank you so much ICE for all the support you have given me from the very beginning of starting my business. Your expertise and guidance have been so valuable. ICE have helped grow my business via the courses and training they provide. Thank you so much for all your support.
I took the big leap to go out on my own in 2016. While it was initially terrifying I was amazed at the support available and particularly for that offered by ICE. Apart from the ICE folks being absolutely lovely to deal with, the amount of extremely helpful talks, workshops and events they organise is just fantastic. I have attended many and have learned loads - e.g. following their 'build your own website workshop', I ended up building my own website - something I thought I'd never do. I've met some wonderful inspiring people and made great connections and always felt supported, they truly are a fantastic organisation and I am forever grateful.
Shane and ICE have been extremely helpful in setting up my company, navigating the available support and thinking about my growth as a leader as well. The work they are doing in continuously supporting entrepreneurs through various tracks, courses and meetups is highly beneficial to the broader community. I know I can count on ICE and I am motivated to give back as much as I can.
ICE have been so helpful since I started my business 8 years ago. They are extremely approachable, and the team go above and beyond to help in any way they can. The training courses are excellent and a great informal way to network with other start-ups. During Covid times, the training courses are even more regular and accessible on Zoom. They not only focus on your business but also on wellness which is really important in these challenging times. Thanks for all the support guys.
I will be forever grateful to Inner City Enterprise for their support when I was setting up my business. Not only are they a great resource for information to help you every step of the way but they also provide amazing networking opportunities for their clients. The ICE team want you to win, they want you to be a success and they will help you any way they can to make sure that happens. If you are lucky enough to be a client of theirs then you won’t look back! Thank you guys
