Global Entrepreneurship Week 2022 will be taking place from 14 to 20 November and this year Mid and East Antrim Borough Council has brought together a diverse programme of FREE events and activities aimed at promoting entrepreneurship, encouraging new start-ups, inspiring our business base and supporting sustainability and innovation of our SMEs.
