Kickstart the Startups Event was held in Gorey Shopping Centre on Saturday, 5th November 2016. The Event was held by KM Media, a local startup business in Gorey and was proudly sponsored by the Local Enterprise Office Wexford and Wexford County Council.
Five local startup businesses, which included KM Media, held a free stand at the Event. In addition to KM Media, the other businesses included Make It Fruity, the Brickx Club Gorey, Gorey School of English & Sound out Rhythm. All businesses attending were very happy at the end of the day as the Event raised more awareness for them & they received a lot of interest from the community.
There was plenty to see and do for the community. Gorey Youth Needs Group provided Face Painting and Giggles the Clown also entertained. KM Media displayed a slideshow of their web design portfolio and also provided a complimentary photoshoot on the day for families & photos with Giggles the Clown. Make it Fruity displayed their fantastic creative fruit bouquets. The Brickx Club Gorey provided a floor mat and Lego for children to play with. Gorey School of English provided information about becoming a host family for Spanish Students coming to Ireland. Sound out Rhythm showcased their drums & provided information on their lessons.
