Action Community & Enterprise CLG T/A Ace Enterprise Park is a facility developed in consultation with the Community of Clondalkin to support the development, growth and economy of Clondalkin and its residents.
A fundamental element of all community enterprise facilities which differentiate them from the commercial retail and industrial parks is the ability to provide a subsidised temporary space for small enterprises to allow them to grow and develop in a professional supportive environment and without the financial strains of a full commercial lease.
The success of the community enterprise centre is based on two key elements:
(1) The ability of the centre to stay financially sustainable.
(2) Ensuring current occupants’ businesses are sustainable and they are ready to be progressed on after their licensed period has lapsed, thus resulting in available space for new micro enterprises.
The balancing act of the above two elements is critical to the success of any Community Enterprise Centre, as future economic activity will ultimately affect both.
