Celebrating the success of these startups and SMEs – all at different stages of development – and meeting them in person after three years of engagement online, was a highlight of the Showcase Event.

Michelle O’Rourke & Carole Thurston of South East BIC who managed the SuNSE project highlighted the achievements and outputs of the last three years.

Key achievements for SuNSE here in Ireland included:
- 37 Irish social enterprises received business consultancy support – including business modelling, business planning and funding application supports
- 20 Irish social enterprises were assisted to grow in the Southern region
- 13 Irish products & services launched on the market
- The SuNSE.eu business development learning platform received over 2000 views

The true meaning of the support network was validated at the Showcase event as the social entrepreneurs met, shared their goals, challenges and built their network and acknowledged the support offered by the South East BIC Consultants during the project.
Stakeholder feedback from Liz Riches WSEN (the Waterford Social Enterprise Network) and Peadar Casey of Team Rural was extremely positive and support the use of the SuNSE model going forward in the region.
