“The clock is counting down. We are fast approaching the closing date for applications for Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur. Now is the time for you to visit www.ibye.ieto enter” says Eamon Ryan, Head of Enterprise for Local Enterprise Office Limerick.


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 Limerick 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 Paddy Finn, Electricity Exchange had this to say about his IBYE experience. “There are several facets of the IBYE journey that knitted together to provide a fantastic experience. I gained great insights from the Bootcamp leaders that I could take right back to the office with me to help focus my business. Business owners often experience tunnel vision and just see the narrow scope of the world around them. The IBYE process provided an unequalled opportunity to engage with other people in the same position. The level of media exposure was also a great boost for the profile of our company.”

The application process is quick, free and simple but applications close on March 15th so time is running out. “Just visit www.ibye.ie and take 15 minutes to complete your application. If you have any difficulties at all give usa call on 061) 557499. We’re just a call away and we are happy to help.”


Eamon concluded “We would love to see a young entrepreneur from #TeamLimerick making it to the National Finals of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur 2019 in Google this year. Come on, enter the competition today and who knows it could be you!”
