THE STUDENT ENTERPRISE PROGRAMME
The Student Enterprise Programme is the biggest enterprise competition for students in Ireland and has been running successfully nationwide for over 10 years. The programme and competition aims to introduce students from all over the country to the world of business, enterprise and entrepreneurship. It actively engages students to grasp the life skills associated with running a real enterprise including working as part of a team, managing production and finances, organising a sales and marketing campaign and liaising directly with customers, judges and the media. The winning teams from each category then go on to compete against other students from around Ireland at the LEO Student Enterprise Programme National Final in Croke Park in April. Over the past 3 years, over 5,000 students took part in the Dublin City programme. And in 2015/16, over 45% of all schools in the Dublin City catchment area took part in this highly successful programme.
