Hi all, I have a (what I think) is a brilliant business idea and I have done research including a thorough investigation of competitors and an online survey of potential customers and Im feeling very positive that I could move this forward and make it into a viable business. The reason I am posting here (it is possibly is the wrong place for it) is to enquire if anyone knows of funding options available for start-up businesses for people who are currently unemployed. I have looked into the CEB's and Enterprise Ireland but the business I have in mind is not one that meets their criteria.

Would appreciate any insights or info that any of you could offer me.

Hey bget, great to see some innovation hopefully coming to fruition. If you haven't met the criteria of EI or any incubators, you may need to go down the route of angel investment, as the banks aren't giving diddly-squat, as we all know!

Feel free to PM me a brief overview of the idea (without giving away any obvious bits you'd be rightfully fearful of being nicked!) i.e. the market and the approx amount required, and I might be able to guide you in the right direction.

Best of luck with it, keep us posted.

I think there is lots of value in marketing yourself and really there are people out their with amazing ideas but they don't get off their butts and TAKE action. A small bit of pain for a whole lotta gain' is what my coach use to say to me.

Don't know if anyone has reccommeded these books but If anyone is thinking up starting a restaurant should have a look at these two books:

Setting the table by Danny Meyer. This is an auto biography by the man who runs (among others) the union Square cafe in
New York- very inspirational!

Another one i found good was 'restaurant owners uncorked' by wil brewley. This book is brilliant. It doesn't give you the steps or procedures in a restaurant but is simply the author interviewing 20 successful restaurateurs on how they did it etc.. This book is great as all the info is straight from Proven Individuals from the industry

Brody Sweeney (founder of O'Briens sandwitch shops) - "Making Bread".

No BS, straight to the point and full of practical advice.

Hi, can anyone recommend an up to date book on setting up a business in Ireland? There are so many out there at the minute. I'm literally looking for an Idiots Guide to setting up a business/Guide to being a CEO in Ireland? (It's not for me!)

Thanks.
