Cake Couture Success with Support and Training from Cork City Partnership

Cork City Partnership provides enterprise support & training for people who are thinking of starting their own business and applying for the BTWEA scheme through the Dept. of Employment Affairs & Social Protection. Karolina Wasilewska of Cake Couture started her business from home and had this to say about the service we provide.

“Hallo Tony,

I would like to thank you so much  for support and believe in me.
My business after two months going very well. I positively surprised. Cake Couture becomes popular not only in Ballincollig but also I have orders from Cork centre, Kinsale, Macroom Midleton and other places. And this is only beginning. I wish you all the best.”

Continued success to Karolina and her Cake Couture business.

 

Sharon McDermott, KY KY KIDS, finalist in the ILDN Enterprise Awards 2019

‘Sharon McDermott, finalist in the ILDN Enterprise Awards 2019 preparing for the National event on Thursday May 16th in Tullamore. Best of luck from Cork City Partnership. … no time to cut the grass then Sharon?’

The National Enterprise Awards will take place in Tullamore on May 16. Nominated by Cork City Partnership, Sharon will compete with entrepreneurs from all over Ireland who have been selected by local development companies.

In 2019, the Local Development Companies (LDC) Enterprise Awards will be presented to persons who have successfully set-up their own business under the Back to Work / Short Term / Enterprise Allowance Scheme. The National Enterprise Awards are being organised by the Irish Local Development Network (ILDN), which is the representative body of Local Development Companies in Ireland.

“We are delighted to see Sharon achieve such success with her children’s clothing business.  It has taken a lot of hard work and perseverance, but she has shown her entrepreneurial and marketing skills are very strong, and has gone from startup to profitable business over the last two years. We wish Sharon every success at the ILDN National Enterprise Awards next month in Tullamore,” said Tony O’Regan of the Cork City Partnership.

Sharon McDermott said of her journey; “The enterprise support and training that I received from the Cork City Partnership at the early stages along with the expertise and advise from the Local Enterprise Office proved invaluable. I also did extensive market research which ensured that my company evolved to what the market actually wanted – occasion wear for children that is machine washable, durable and practical as well as being stylish and pretty. I use social media to promote Ky Ky Kids clothing collections, and the online retail shop was set up a year ago now. I’m looking forward to meeting fellow business people in Tullamore at the ILDN National Enterprise Awards.”

Over thirty schools across the city access these programmes which benefit 850 children annually. A report outlining these programmes and how they operate was launched today in St. Brendan’s National School, The Glen. The report highlights feedback from school staff and students which shows the importance of these programmes in retaining children in education and optimising their performance.
