ACORNS 2 Gets Underway

Fifty seven early stage female entrepreneurs,  living in rural Ireland, have  been selected  to participate  in ACORNS 2. The programme will run from October 2016 until April 2017. This innovative programme is funded under the CEDRA Rural Innovation and Development Fund through the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM).

In welcoming the launch of ACORNS 2, Michael Creed TD Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine said, “I am pleased to announce the second year of this very effective programme. Job creation is a priority for this Government and an important focus of Foodwise 2025.  The success of last year’s programme shows what a difference mentoring and peer learning can make to rural women in developing their new business ideas.”
