Now in its fifth year, this dynamic competition is open to 18 to 35-year-olds who have an idea for starting a business or who are already running their own business.

“We have a €50,000 prize fund to give away here in LEO Dublin City and we are looking for young entrepreneurs to enter in the three categories: Best New Idea, Best Start Up and Best Established Business.”

All entrants are invited to an Enterprise Day with brilliant business advice and mentoring on offer. From there, a shortlist will be invited to an intensive Boot Camp and will move forward the #IBYE County Final. 

2018 IBYE finalist Noel Dykes of Frankli had this to say about his IBYE experience. “IBYE gave us the confidence and validation we needed to press on with our business. It also opened up a valuable network of customers and investors.”
