Joanne Mangan, former head of communications at the hugely successful social enterprise Grow Remote, has joined Enterprise Nation to lead its Ireland business support arm.

County Galway-based Joanne was one of the founding team of Grow Remote and has played a key role in successfully campaigning for Ireland to be a global leader in remote working. She brings over 15 years' experience spanning the social enterprise, small business and multinational landscapes.

She will head-up Enterprise Nation's operations, building key corporate partnerships, recruiting a remote team and supporting existing strategic partnerships, including that with business technology conference the Dargan Forum, which aims to help accelerate small business engagement with technology to boost local Irish economies.

Joanne said:

"The Irish small business ecosystem is evolving fast. The big focus has been on the huge investment from American and European multinationals creating jobs in Dublin, but there is an emerging community of entrepreneurs who are seizing opportunity and launching their own business.

"That means there is a new generation of start-ups that need access to tried and tested support to help them get successful.

"That's a big step and Enterprise Nation has all of this knowledge ready to go. I'm really excited to roll my sleeves up and get involved with this mission to support Irish start-ups and small businesses."

Emma Jones, founder and CEO of small business support platform and membership community Enterprise Nation, said:

"We're delighted Joanne has joined our growing team to support our ambition to help thousands of Irish start-ups and small businesses achieve their potential.

"Enterprise Nation exists to support entrepreneurs in their early-stage journeys, removing the obstacles and building the skill bank they need to thrive."

The group is focused on bringing its global business support expertise to support the businesses already trading -- and thousands of future start-ups.
