ACE Enterprise Centre set to Benefit from Government Grant

ACE Clondalkin

The Government has announced over €48,000 for the Action and Community Enterprise Centre (ACE) in Clondalkin’s Bawnogue.

Welcoming the news, local T.D. Emer Higgins, said that the ACE centre is a resource for budding entrepreneurs which will soon boast amenities including a digital hub.

“Earlier this year the ACE Enterprise Centre received €1000,000 under the Enterprise Ireland’s Enterprise Centres Fund, to help it transform it’s current centre into a digital resource for local entrepreneurs. I’m delighted that they’ve now secured an additional €48,000 from Government to support the centre with this project. ACE is a fantastic resource in Clondalkin and a huge support for budding entrepreneurs. Already it supports over 120 clients ranging from community groups to start-ups. This funding will be crucial to the centre as it builds out its co-working space and delivers its brand new Digital Suite and audio-visual services,” said Deputy Emer Higgins.

“I was delighted to tour the facility with its Chairman, John Curran, recently to see first-hand it’s new industrial kitchen which is supporting up-and-coming bakers, chefs and cooks, and to view their plans to develop open-plan office spaces and a boardroom complete with video-conferencing facilities. Well done to Kerrie, James and all the team at ACE for continuing to empower local entrepreneurs,” concluded Emer Higgins T.D.
