The Student Enterprise Programme

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.

Today we did an interview for @theclarepeople with journalist Andy Hamilton. We spoke about everything, from coming up with the idea for the book, to our future goals for the business and more. Make sure you don’t miss it!

@stjosephsborris @LEOTipperary @StudentEntProg what a fantastic display of business ideas today. Well done to all involved and to everyone who made the day a massive success, teachers, judges and students 😀

We are kicking off the @LEOCorkCity @Corkcoco @SEPCork @StudentEntProg Business Plan Writing Workshop @UCC #studententerprise #sep2019 @corkcitycouncil @corkcitycentre

One of the biggest mistakes is thinking that judges already know your business. Tell your story! Write it down! Introduce others to your idea and your business! @LEOCorkCity @StudentEntProg #studententerprise
