What is SEED?
SEED is a consortium of councils which have come together to support local businesses.
SEED comprises Banbridge District Council, Craigavon Borough Council, Armagh City and District Council and Newry & Mourne District Council.
What is the Sustainable Enterprise Programme?
The Sustainable Enterprise Programme incorporates a “package” of initiatives, all of which are aimed at supporting Small and Medium sized businesses in the SEED region.
Who is delivering the Sustainable Enterprise Programme?
Full Circle Management Solutions in conjunction with Deirdre Fitzpatrick and Associates have been appointed by the SEED Councils to develop, deliver and manage the Sustainable Enterprise Programme.
Why are these awards taking place?
Theme 1 of the Programme includes a Business Awards competition which will seek to recognize the efforts of owner-managers in the SEED region in what is currently a challenging economic climate.
