Ireland’s first Pop Up Bank was held in Croke Park by RTE’s The Business which saw banks and credit unions, state agencies and venture capitalists, come together for one day to meet with over 250 small businesses looking for credit or capital.

RTE is thrilled and very encouraged about the roll out of a Pop Up Bank to the Midwest. Said George Lee of The Business, “It’s great that the Midwest has decided to run with a Pop Up Bank, we got a great response in Dublin, it’s amazing what can happen when money and ideas come together.”

The list of participants includes AIB, Bank of Ireland, Ulster Bank, KBC Bank, the City & County Enterprise Boards of the Midwest Region (Limerick, Clare, Tipperary North & Kerry), Enterprise Ireland, Limerick Institute of Technology (Limerick Enterprise Acceleration Platform and Franchise Acceleration Start-up Training Programmes) the Paul Partnership, First Step, HALO Partnership (Cork BIC), the Limerick, Ennis & Shannon Chambers of Commerce, Shannon Development, the Revenue Commissioners and others.
