Get Started



It gave me the opportunity to turn my idea into a reality in times of such economic scarcity.


ENI Start Up Loans helped my business transit from “getting started” to “getting it going”.


I have been involved within snooker circles for 20 years and have always wanted to start my own club and thanks to ENI Start Up Loans they have helped me greatly in accessing the finance and also been very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to start out on the business path.


ENI Start Up Loans enabled a far off idea become a reality. The process is quick easy and straight forward and the people most importantly where more than helpful.


ENI Start Up Loans has helped me make a start in my business, without them I wouldn’t have been able to purchase all the kit and equipment I needed to start First Aid training. From the initial meeting in Carrick Enterprise Agency through to the final meeting for funding I was made to feel at ease and everything was explained to me in great detail ensuring I understood everything to progress. The funding has good interest rates with an affordable monthly repayment.

The mentoring scheme I have used, namely tendering and marketing, has so far been of great use, opening my eyes to what needs to be done to move forward in the modern day business world. Again the mentors are very welcoming and willing to pass on their knowledge to assist new start-ups.

I encourage anyone thinking of starting a business to consider ENI Loans to help them get started.


My start up loan enabled me to purchase the equipment necessary to conduct my business.


ENI Start Up Loans was my life line. Without them I wouldn’t be living my dream right now. The mentoring is second to none. Francis, my business advisor has been such a help to me. He was the key to it all. 


The ENI Loan allowed us at Gradsmarts to move from a research and development phase into bringing our service to the market for the first time. This transition was brought about ahead of schedule because of the support from Enterprise NI.


Well in a nut shell if it weren’t for ENI Start Up Loans approving me for a loan I wouldn’t have been able to open my gym. It was difficult to access bank funding because I had only been self-employed for 10 months and the cash flow through my account wasn’t steady enough. I knew I could succeed if given the chance and funding and that’s exactly what ENI Start Up Loans did. It was quite straightforward. I spoke to a very helpful business advisor about some of the finer details of my business idea and before I knew it I was approved for a loan. The mentoring programme kept me right so many times when I wasn’t just sure what I was doing and is definitely worth taking advantage of. My mentor is always on hand if I need advice or guidance.


This loan fund is fantastic because it gives normal people with a good business idea a real chance of getting started. I personally couldn’t have started without them and I’m truly grateful for their help and support.
