Our Enterprise Services
Portlaoise Enterprise Centre opened its doors in 2007 as a one-stop shop for people starting and developing businesses. Since then, we have had lots of people use our services, some are still with us, and some have moved on to pastures new, but our goal still remains the same – to foster economic development in Portlaoise and its surrounding areas.
What’s in Our Centre
We provide a professional, supportive, and cost-effective facility to people in business. Some people are only starting to take their first tentative steps, others are further along the road but find that they now need some help to develop their business further. However, the goal is the same for all our entrepreneurs – to see their business dreams become realities.
We work closely with other support agencies in county Laois such as the Local Enterprise Office, to provide as much assistance and support to our client businesses as we can, and our Centre Coordinator is always on hand to share her knowledge and expertise with our client businesses.

Co-working is a way of working that has become popular in the last few years and reflects the changing way we do business. Thanks to advances in technology, we are now able to work remotely and save ourselves the long commute time and fuel costs by working in a central location.
Broadband, Wi-Fi, Zoom, and other tools mean that we can be in constant contact with our employers without having to travel long distances to our company HQ.
We understand how important it is to separate business from home life. Our small office spaces allow you to do just that.
Our offices can comfortably accommodate 1-4 people and with your own “front door” you can choose your own hours with 24/7 access.
