Portarlington Enterprise Centre

Portarlington Enterprise Centre was the brainchild of Portarlington Community Development Association (PCDA) and has a voluntary Board of Directors. It is run as a not-for- profit business with its key focus being on fostering business and employment opportunities for the local community. It is 10 years since Portarlington Enterprise Centre opened its doors. Since then, more than 50 local micro-enterprises have spent time as resident businesses of Portarlington Enterprise Centre and at present we have 14 businesses under our roof. Added to this we have mentored and advised countless other non-resident individuals and businesses from the locality, advising them where best to seek financial support, grant assistance, mentoring and business training. Our tag line is “Supporting Local Enterprise Development since 2006”.
