BUSINESSES and local organisations in Sligo have collaborated on a unique branded content project with the ‘Irish Independent’ - a quality 24-page supplement focused on job creation, education, small business and entrepreneurship in the North West town.
'SXNW - Sligo X North West’ is free inside Wednesday’s newspaper and tells the stories of people who are working and living there and involved in tech and creative startups, tourism businesses, culture and education.
The supplement also looks at how IT Sligo is leading the national drive to develop online learning and investigates the job-creation supports that are driving future investment in the region.
SXNW features contributions from famous Sligo and North West residents including IMAPC-winning novelist Kevin Barry, pro-surfer Easkey Britton and those who have made the move West from Dublin.
Niall McEvoy, head of innovation at IT Sligo said: “This is a great opportunity to showcase the many opportunities Sligo offers to business and learning."
Bodies including IT Sligo, Sligo County Council, AIB, Enterprise Ireland and Sligo Chamber of Commerce have all contributed to the supplement.
