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.

The 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.
