Bring a member of Acorns 4 is rather important and a select few are chosen.
Paula Fitzsimons, founder and managing director of Fitzsimons Consulting, is a recognised expert on entrepreneurship. Paula has been the national coordinator for GEM for Ireland since 2000. The annual GEM report is recognised as giving a unique insight into early stage entrepreneurial activity in Ireland. Paula is a former President of the consortium of GEM national teams, and a former Director of GERA, the governing body for the Global Entrepreneurship Research Association.
Recognising that fewer women start new businesses and, of those that start, fewer have significant growth ambitions than do men, Paula Fitzsimons designed and developed the Going for Growth programme. The initiative is focused on peer support as a means of nurturing ambition among established women entrepreneurs and providing support to achieve growth aspirations. The Going for Growth initiative is funded by Enterprise Ireland and KPMG.
