Where once there were County and City Enterprise Boards, now there are Local Enterprise Offices. These came into being on April 15 to continue the work of the CEBs and maintain support for start-ups, micro-enterprises and other small businesses.

Like the CEBs before them, the LEOs will offer both hard and soft supports to burgeoning enterprises, including direct financial assistance and a linking service connecting micro-enterprises with state resources like the Revenue and Microfinance Ireland.
