Student Enterprise is a highlight for us each year. We get to work some of Irelands finest young budding Entrepreneurs. This is an initiative which we work with in as contractors to the Local Enterprise Offices. We work with our clients in the following ways:
- Student Enterprise Programme Co-Ordination
- Presentation of Student Enterprise Induction Days
- Presentation of business plan writing and other workshops
- One to one school mentoring
- Judging Student Enterprise
- Guest speaker
- Facilitation of County finals and events
It is a pleasure and privilege to work with students as they start and grow their enterprises.
The Student Enterprise Programme, an initiative run by the Network of Local Enterprise Offices of Ireland, is Ireland’s largest and most successful student enterprise programme with over 23,000 second level students taking part each year.
Students from 1st year to 6th year get to set up and run their own business and find out what it’s really like to be an entrepreneur by taking part in this 8 month long enterprise education learning programme.
The Programme runs from September to May, and students get to do everything a real life entrepreneur would do from coming up with the business idea to marketing, sales and preparing a business plan.
At the end of the Programme in May, one student business from each region gets to compete at the National Final in Dublin for the ‘Student Enterprise of the Year’ award.
