By @SimonCocking. Latest news from Entrepreneurs Anonymous (EntAnon) who we featured yesterday in Business Showcase. 

The 6 year old grassroots, entrepreneurs events organisation EntAnon (Entrepreneurs Anonymous), with over 5 000 active members in Ireland, has decided to double down on its investment in the Irish scene by supporting companies participating in the Competitive Startup Fund (CSF) worth €50,000 provided by Enterprise Ireland.

Any members of Entrepreneurs Anonymous who successfully apply for CSF funding by 21st of September, will receive another €5,000 investment from EntAnon on similar terms to Enterprise Ireland. The first €25 000 of CSF are to be released to successful applicants after another investment of €5,000 is secured by the founder.

This will allow founders to immediately release the first €25,000 of CSF funding, thus helping to focus on building their ideas instead of spending time finding an extra €5,000 from other investors. Ireland’s startup scene is growing faster than ever due to the amazing work being done by Enterprise Ireland through CSF, and EntAnon urges its members to consider CSF as the launch ramp for their startup idea. The initiative will commence with the upcoming General CSF call ending on September 21st, and any successful application by an EntAnon member is eligible to receive their €5,000, pending approval.
