Having been involved in this programme since 2014, the team in WhiteLight Consulting were delighted to be appointed Project Managers for the 2016 campaign.
Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur (IBYE) is a dynamic and fast paced competition that seeks out entrepreneurs aged under 35 from right across Ireland. Delivered by the Local Enterprise Office network, it connects young entrepreneurs with the supports, training, advice and funding that is available within their own community.
Each county has a winner in each of the 3 counties (Best Business Idea, Best Start Up and Best Established Business). The County Winners each receive investment in their business and expert support and mentoring to develop their business plan for the next stage … the Regional Finals. Ultimately, 24 young entrepreneurs will go forward to the National Finals in Google HQ on Sunday 5th March.
But for now, the next big step is the IBYE Bootcamps in November where our young entrepreneurs will sharpen and hone their business skills. And from there they progress to the County Finals in December … it’s all go!
It’s a fabulous project for us to manage, we love to see all this amazing young talent coming through. Roll on Regional and National Finals … we can’t wait to meet Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneurs!
