A free one-stop-shop event for SMEs, ‘Taking Care of Business’, will take place on Wednesday November 8 in the Printworks Conference Centre in Dublin Castle. This half-day event is for those who own or manage a small business or are thinking of starting a new business.
A range of State offices and agencies, including the HPRA, will give short presentations and will have staff on hand at exhibition stands to answer questions about key regulations
and what assistance is available to your business.
Staff from the HPRA's Innovation Office will be available to meet with individuals, academics, small and medium enterprises, and other groups who are developing innovative health products or technologies. We can advise on regulatory requirements and provide general guidance on technical or scientific issues that you may need to consider.
Other agencies will offer advice on topics such as:
• Tax, employment and Health & Safety obligations
• Legal requirements for setting up and running your business
• Supports from enterprise agencies
The event will be opened by Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Frances Fitzgerald TD, and will also be addressed by Minister of State for Trade, Employment and Business, Pat Breen TD. Information stands will be open throughout, allowing you to speak informally with staff from each of the bodies attending.
