Previous IBYE winners, including Niall Mimnagh of ‘Mimergy’ in Longford, met up with the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’ Connor TD and talked about the role IBYE has played in their business success stories.
They were also joined by representatives of Enterprise Ireland and the Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs).
Their message to aspiring young entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 35 in County Longford is to grasp the opportunity and get their applications into www.ibye.ie by the October 14 deadline.
Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur (IBYE) is an initiative of the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation and Enterprise Ireland.
It is run by Local Enterprise Office Longford, which has an investment fund of up to €50,000 to award to young entrepreneurs across three categories locally - Best Business Idea, Best Start-Up Business and Best Established Business. See this week’s Longford Leader for more details.
