WhiteLight Consulting are delighted, once again, to work with the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Enterprise Ireland, Google and the Local Enterprise Office Network on the planning and management of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur.
Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur is a dynamic competition open to anyone under 35 who has a business idea, a new business or an established business … and now is the time to apply!
Hosted by the 31 Local Enterprise Offices (LEO) across the country, each LEO area has a prize fund of €50,000 to share between three county winners. 93 county winners then advance to Regional Finals, vying for a place in the National Finals next Spring. At the National Finals in Google, 3 entrepreneurs will be named national category winners with one being crowned Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur. Collectively they will share a further prize fund of €100,000.
It’s a great opportunity for you (or someone you know) to win valuable investment in your business, access expert business mentoring and support, get media and industry exposure, build a network with other young entrepreneurs and perhaps be crowned Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur.
