On the morning of April 17th, over 300 finalists from all over the country, including the Galway County & City finalists, descended upon GAA Headquarters and set-up an enterprise exhibition and displays before taking part in a series of judging interviews. The budding entrepreneurs were marked on key business areas such as: innovation, market research, sales, production, marketing, finances and planning.


The local budding entrepreneurs from Galway County & City all successfully researched, set up and managed a business over the last year, learning important business and enterprise skills along the way. An enterprising culture in second level today will lead to a more enterprising culture in Irish workplaces and boardrooms in the future, where innovation and business skills are to the fore.”
