What an outstanding event today hosted by DELL in their world-class facility in Raheen where they employ 1,200 highly skilled employees, many of them with global responsibilities within the DELL organisation. DELL hosted the LIT Mid-West showcase – over 150 start-up and emerging enterprises showcasing their products and services in a unique setting within the heart of the DELL organisation. A marriage between the highly successful large multi-national helping to nurture and promote the success of our budding entrepreneurs and the next generation of Irish businesses. And An Taoiseach dropped in with Gay Mitchell extending his planned 30 minute viist to 1.5 hours. This was the biggest enterprise showcase in Ireland outside of Dublin.  Well done DELL, well done LIT. Two forward thinking and progressive organisations leading the way, showing active leadership and delivering so much support and confidence to the entrepreneurial community in Limerick and the Mid-West.
