Back for Business Further Development Testimonials

Back for Business 2 and Back for Business Further Development were a great help to me and my business. It is difficult returning home after being abroad for a period of time and getting in a group surrounded by ambitious individuals and great entrepreneurial experience of the Leads was hugely beneficial to both me personally and for my business. It is a superbly run programme and I highly recommend it.

-Brian Fitzpatrick, BF Sports Analysis


Back for Business is a really beneficial programme for any entrepreneurs returning home with a business idea. It is not just a programme where you will theoretically plan what you could do as many others are, this a programme that gives you real practical insights that you put in place in your business plan that will have an impact. Paula and her team have been doing this for a long time and really know what they are doing. The network of Back for Business is absolutely invaluable!

-Kayleigh Breen, The Wedding Wizard


The Back for Business programme provides access to expert mentors, practical workshops and a supportive network of peers throughout the cycle and beyond. It has been invaluable for my business since returning home and I’m grateful to Paula and the team for all the work behind the scenes to make this possible. I highly recommend Back for Business and strongly encourage recently returned entrepreneurs to apply.

The Back for Business programme has been a massive help to my business. This programme cultivates an environment that allows returning entrepreneurs to have access to the right network which allows them to perform at their best. Returning home from abroad can be just as hard as moving to a new country, you need to build your network and your reputation in your sector. Being part of Back for Business has helped me focus on my key business goals, the factors that ensure success. Paula and her team are amazing, and the Lead Entrepreneurs have so much knowledge that they are more than happy to share with you. My Lead Entrepreneur really went beyond the call of duty and was very generous with his time. I would recommend any budding entrepreneur itching to return home, nervous of taking that leap, to apply for the Back for Business programme, it will make a world of difference to your business.

-Nicholas Ryan, Limerick Spirits Company


Back for Business is an exceptional programme for three main reasons. Number 1, the people involved in it. Paula and her team and these lead Entrepreneurs are helpful, informative and very knowledgeable. Number 2, the format is effective in keeping you on track, staying accountable and measuring your success. Number 3, the networking. You will meet a lot of likeminded people and there will always be a contact that might be able to help you or vice versa.

-Shayne Murphy, SDM Performance


Back for Business continues to be a constant source of support for our business since we started. Networking, learning, and meeting entrepreneurs with shared experiences and ambitions are at the core of the programme. Providing an outlet, a forum and a base for returning emigrants to grow from.
