As the National Finals of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur draws near, we are really feeling the excitement!
The WhiteLight Consulting office is buzzing. We are working on the graphics for all the print and digital materials, videos for social media and the awards ceremony, guestlists, running orders, plans for Judging Day, Google First Friday and so much more.
Yesterday, we had a wonderful Pitch Training day with Noel Davidson at Google‘s Dublin Headquarters and a photocall for the news and business media. It was wonderful to see the finalists meeting for the first time and starting to form relationships with their fellow entrepreneurs. Perhaps the highlight of the day was a visit to Government Buildings for an audience with An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar T.D.
The competition is hosted by the Local Enterprise Offices nationally, Enterprise Ireland, the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation and Google. It seeks out young entrepreneurs and aims to get in early and provide state supports such as mentoring, advice, connections and investment to help accelerate business growth and job creation.
It’s a busy time but the team at WhiteLight are delighted to work on such a wonderful competition and to see such amazing business ideas coming to life. We look foward to the big day on Sunday 4th March in The Foundry at Google and wish all 24 amazing young entrepreneurs the best of luck in these last few days.
