The Student Entrepreneur Awards have been relaunched for 2017! 

The Awards, now in their 36th year, are open to all fulltime third-level students in the Republic of Ireland.  Co-sponsored by Enterprise Ireland, Cruickshank Intellectual Property Attorneys, Grant Thornton and Intel, the Awards attracted submissions from over 1,500 students in 2016.

The Student Entrepreneur Awards are part of an ongoing drive aimed at tapping into the potential for students to turn entrepreneurial ideas into commercial businesses. The objective is to encourage third-level students to start their own business as a career option.  With a total cash prize fund of €35,000 and expert mentoring, guidance and consultancy worth €30,000 from the blue-chip sponsors, the Awards provide a great platform for ambitious and enterprising third level students to build a viable and commercial business venture.

This is a great opportunity to turn a realistic business idea into a winning project and possibly a commercial business. To enter the Awards, students are requested to submit a short video that captures their business idea and shows it’s commercial and export potential. Closing date for the competition is 17 March 2017.
