“Small and medium sized businesses are the engine of job growth and development in the Irish economy,” said Ciaran Quilty, vice president of global business group at Facebook. “It’s crucial now more than ever to support them in any way we can during Covid-19.
“We decided to launch Boost with Facebook online to continue to help small businesses as many of them face unprecedented challenges in how they carry out their day-to-day business and connect with their customers. Through this series of online webinars, we will walk entrepreneurs through a step by step guide on how they can adapt and even thrive during these challenging times.”
