The search is on for Ireland's Best Young Entrepreneur.




Could it be you or someone you know aged between 18 - 35?

If you are in business already or even just have a good idea for a business – then you should consider entering Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur.


The idea category is open to anyone 18-35 who feels they have a great business idea. They don't even need to be in business, just to have a great business idea!


If they are 18-35 and have already taken the brave step of going into business – no matter what that business might be – then you they should really consider applying in the Best Start Up (trading less than 18 months) or Best Established (trading more than 18 months) categories.


Initial applicants are short-listed to local finalists who receive intensive Business Bootcamp training ahead of the Donegal final, but to be in with a chance of making that cut, entrepreneurs need to make sure they have their applications submitted online before the September 29 deadline.


From there they could be in with a chance to share in the €50,000 prize money that’s up for grabs in the Donegal final.


Applications for this year’s competition can be made by filling in a simple form online - but they must be in by Friday 29 September 2017.

If you have any questions about the competition and how it may help you someone you know, contact the Local Enterprise Office Donegal to find out more 074-9160735
