An Information Evening will be held in the Innovation in Business Centre (IiBC) at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) Castlebar on Thursday 10th January 2008, from 6.30pm – 8.30pm. This enterprise programme is developed for individuals with an innovative business idea who are interested in starting their own business.

Springwell Software Technologies is an example of one of the companies that is located in IiBC and which participated on the MWEP in 2007.
