Sligo Women in Business Network (SWIBN)
Sligo Women in Business Network(SWIBN) was established in 2004 through funding accessed by the Board from the Programme for Peace and Reconciliation. The programme continued to 2008 funded under Peace II extension funding. In 2008 the Board made the decision to fund the facilitation of the network and other network activities on a yearly basis subject to funding being available. Through the initial support of the funders Border Action and the ongoing support of Sligo County Enterprise Board and the facilitators the network has grown to over 300 members.
We meet in The Glasshouse Hotel in Sligo on the last Tuesday of each month. Our new calendar combines high profile speakers, including entrepreneurs with real stories of business creation, with networking activities. Meetings are light hearted, easy to engage with and relevant. (See up to date details in Sligo Hub calendar.)
SWIBN is 100% funded through LEO Sligo, i.e.,Ireland’s European Structural and Investment Funds programmes 2014-2020 which are Co-Funded by the Irish Government and the European Union, and European Regional Development Funds.
