Focused Policy Assessment of Start Up and Entrepreneurship Expenditure

This paper presents the Focused Policy Assessment of Capital Expenditure by the Department of Business, Enterprise & Innovation (DBEI) on supports for Start-up and Entrepreneurship.

The objectives of this FPA are to take a top down analysis of total DBEI funding of Start-up and Entrepreneurship expenditure and to trace that investment through its main activities, outputs and impacts across the main themes of investment. This Focused Policy Assessment concentrates on the financial supports given by Local Enterprise Offices and Enterprise Ireland to entrepreneurs and start-up businesses in Ireland.

This paper forms part of a Comprehensive Review of Expenditure initiated by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform.
