Five Things we Learned this International Women’s Day

Five Things we Learned this International Women’s Day

Here at Noone Casey, we are passionate about supporting Women in Business and we are delighted to support Roseann Heavey, one of our partners, as she takes on the role of the 2018 National President of Network Ireland.
Network Ireland is a progressive, dynamic organisation supporting the professional and personal development of women. Our membership is made up of a very diverse group of women, from budding entrepreneurs, SME owners, professionals and leaders in indigeno.
As part of her role as National President, Roseann had the task of running an International Women’s Day Event for 250 of Ireland’s leading women in business. The sold-out event was held in the Intercontinental Hotel in Dublin on March 8th and proved a huge success.
We thought we would share with you some lessons, ideas and statistics we took from the day and provide you with some food for thought, in this first blog of our Women in Business Blog Series.

Throughout the last three decades, Irish firms have seen sales grow, relationships become stronger and awareness of Ireland increase in China year after year. The sheer size of China’s economy provides a wealth of opportunities for determined Irish companies.

There are a growing number of young professionals with significant disposable income in the major coastal cities who aspire to higher standards of living. Also, in their drive to address export markets, Chinese businesses are developing an appetite for technology, systems and infrastructure that cannot be satisfied by domestic suppliers.

Top 3 Investment Criteria

A survey amongst venture capital investors revealed the top three criteria that are used in assessing the attractiveness of a proposition. Business angel investors are probably no different. The top three criteria arising from the survey were:

  1. Management team;
  2. Exit opportunity; and
  3. Revenue potential.

Budget 2017

Framed by “New Politics”, Brexit concerns and demands for more support for the SME and start-up sector, Michael Noonan and Pascal Donohoe have delivered Budget 2017.

The general consensus is that the Budget is positive for most sectors but has taken few risks.
