A project that has really captured our hearts is www.restart.how. Togehter with Irish partners Letterkenny Institute of Technology and EU colleagues in Spain, The Netherlands and Bulgaria we are putting second chance entrrepreneurship to the fore. Sheer grit, determination and entrepreneurial spirit was on the menu at the Irish Restart Multiplier Event at CoLab, Letterkenny Institute of Technology, on March 9th 2017.
The 50+ strong group of delegates heard from second chance entrepreneur Sandra Walsh of Canopi Sleeves, who, when recession hit, was forced to close her fashion boutique in an affluent Dublin suburb. Undeterred, Sandra spurred on by self-belief, determination and the support of her family, rejuvenated her career by designing an innovative product Canopi Sleeves which is now stocked in high end stores such as Harrods and Brown Thomas.
