A major new Northern Ireland enterprise support service ‘Go Succeed’ is now live across the Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough.


This initiative aims to offer entrepreneurs, start-ups, and existing businesses throughout the Borough valuable guidance and financial support. The comprehensive service includes tailored business support pathways, bespoke mentoring, masterclasses, peer-to-peer networking opportunities, and access to grant assistance.


The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Mark Cooper commented: “Go Succeed will play a crucial role in supporting businesses across the Borough, irrespective of their current stage. Promoting entrepreneurship and an enterprising culture will ultimately help stimulate our local economy and generate employment opportunities. I would encourage all businesses and those thinking of setting up their own enterprise to get in touch and access the help and support they need to move forward in their growth journey.”


Funded by the UK Government and powered by the government’s Levelling Up Fund, Go Succeed represents a multi-million pound investment in local entrepreneurs and businesses. It will provide a holistic approach to government support services with a greater focus on providing a tailored service to suit individual needs in a bid to foster enterprise across the region.
