Student Enterprise

Encouraging and promoting an enterprise culture is an important area of activity for Local Enterprise Office Kildare.  In seeking to develop a thriving enterprise culture, it is critical that young people from all backgrounds see enterprise as a viable career choice.  Entrepreneurial qualities and mindset need to be fostered from an early stage.  If we are serious about developing an entrepreneurial ethos we must start with our school-children and young people.  We must listen to their ideas and actively support their innovations, as these can be the secret to the business successes of tomorrow.  Our young people need to be open to the idea of creating a new job rather than looking for one. 

 A number of initiatives are run by  LEO Kildare at both primary and secondary level with the flagship programme the Student Enterprise Programme.
