Thomond Park Pop-Up Bank
GEORGE LEE OPENED the Pop-Up Bank in Limerick's Thomond Park, welcoming 135 people in the crowd to a venue filled with bankers, start-up counselors and support agencies. Unfortunately, no inside track to express loan service was offered for entrepreneurs in search of critical funding required to push along ideas to market. That's the greatest disappointment I heard from several attendees. While the pop-up bank may be a one-time event, regular meet-ups of Limerick OpenCoffee in the Absolute Hotel often help young businesses connect good ideas together for best effect.
