Economic Effects of Enterprise Ireland’s Financial Products

This research funded by Enterprise Ireland will identify and quantify the effects of the Sustaining Enterprise Fund (SEF) on the performance of beneficiaries in terms of their output, productivity and employment growth. The results of this research will inform the evaluation of the impact of the investment in the SEF on the Irish economy in the short, medium and long-term. This research is part of a larger project on the evaluation of the Financial Products managed and administered by Enterprise Ireland. The ESRI team will work together with a group of independent academic and business experts.
