Cllr Richard Holmes has welcomed the launch of the Enterprise Fund to assist new businesses by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
Speaking today Richard said:
“Entrepreneurs are key to driving our local economy. One of the scariest steps anyone can take is to start up a business. But these wealth creators are critical to the success of our Borough.
“It is important that we build on our tourism offer and enhance our tech and industrial sectors which will help to drive up wages in the area. We remain significantly behind other councils in terms of average salaries which is a grave concern.
“This fund has the potential to kick start business growth and can help to build on the Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus. It must be our ambition to turn this area into the entrepreneurial capital of Northern Ireland.”
