The National Final of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur is fast approaching. A highlight of the journey for the finalists must surely have been a visit to Government Buildings to explain their businesses to Minister Bruton and An Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur is a key plank in the Action Plan for Jobs. Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton T.D. has been personally involved in the programme since it commenced in 2014. Over 2,500 companies have entered the competition thus far and nearly 200 have secured investment from the annual prize fund.
WhiteLight Consulting are proud to have worked on the Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur programme since its inception in 2014. We plan and manage the Finalists Training Day. We prepare and manage the National Judging Day. We act as liaison for the National Finalists, guiding them through the final stages of the process. We work hand in hand with the PR team to support PR and Marketing opportunities. We work with key stakeholders including Local Enterprise Offices, Enterprise Ireland, Google and the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation. Finally, we plan and manage all aspects of the National Final, one of the most exciting days in our calendar.
