I am writing to you to ask for your assistance with spreading the word that applications for Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur Awards are now being accepted. Cork had a winner at national level last year and we would love to be able to fly the county colours and repeat this success in 2016.
The Local Enterprise Office is offering the opportunity to aspiring or established young business people between the ages of 18 and 35 to win a place at an intensive 3-day entrepreneur bootcamp to help them develop their business or business idea. We also have an investment fund of €50,000 to invest in our category winners and runners-up. And, of course, the opportunity to vie for the title of Cork’s and Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur 2016!
So, if you know someone between 18 and 35 who has an innovative idea for a new business; has fronted a start-up business for the past 3 years; or, is the lead in an established business for over 3 years who you think might benefit from entering the competition, I would really appreciate your help in getting the word out to your contacts through mentioning the competition or forwarding this email.
All the details on the categories, how to apply, as well as the eligibility criteria and terms and conditions are available at www.ibye.ie
