Mayo Ideas Week is a week-long series of idea generation, entrepreneurship and business events hosted by the development and enterprise support agencies and organisations in County Mayo.

Running every September since 2010, Mayo Ideas Week is very much a collaborative initiative, with more than 30 organisations and agencies co-hosting events over the years.

Every year we showcase successful innovators, and highlight the supports available to help Mayo businesses to innovate. 

Our events are designed to give entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs the space to explore new ideas, and share experiences with other start-ups and businesses in Mayo.

There is also an opportunity to meet with agencies supporting enterprise to see how they might be able to help you to get your ideas off the ground.

Mayo Ideas Week is an initiative of the Nuálann Mhaigheo / Mayo Ideas Lab collaborative project, which was established by the development and enterprise support agencies to support innovation and idea generation in Co. Mayo.
