When Ines first joined the CEED Grow program she was relieved to learn that she joined at just the right moment. In 2005 Ines launched her first business after participating in a business exchange program, funded by the US government, which allowed her to visit a recycling facility in the U.S. Upon returning from her trip she launched Collectun Services which collected recycled goods and then launched her second business, Collectun D3E Recycling in 2009. After experiencing some growth the industry was changing and Ines was having difficulties adapting her strategy. After a few GROW training sessions with CEED Ines discovered she was not alone. Many other entrepreneurs struggled with the questions she was asking herself. Ines was connected with mentors who helped her think through her goals and develop business strategies which would help her scale her business further.
