Optimization+ in association with Carlow County Council – Local Enterprise Office , Carlow Tourism & County Carlow Chamber and Vision Green Consultancy is a consultancy advice programme open to all SME’s in County Carlow to develop money saving green projects.
The programme involves individual company mentoring which is followed by a training briefing to help guide companies to the supports available for implementation of projects which are designed to ensure your company’s competitiveness. These supports include the Lean for Micro & Green for Micro Vouchers which provide up to €2,500 worth of consultancy support each for your company.
