Social Enterprise Presentations
Six social enterprise applications that made it through to the finals of the Social Enterprise Grant Scheme have pitched their ideas to the panel in Dublin LEO offices this morning. With presentations and business plans in hand, new and experienced social enterprises pitched their ideas in front of the grant committee.
The Chosen Few
Amongst those that made it to the finals were:

Grow Dome Project: Dublin’s first geodesic grow dome in the heart of Dublin 8 is an intensive all-year-round sustainable food production tool, an arts and music exhibition space, a community meeting and education area, and an iconic piece of art in its own right – all at the same time.
