Longford Student Enterprise Programme

SEP 2021

Longford Student Enterprise Programme

The Student Enterprise Programme is Ireland’s largest and most successful student enterprise programme, with Longford Local Enterprise Office proud of the great number and quality of projects submitted from schools all across Longford town and county every year. 

As part of the Programme, Longford students get to set up and run their own business and find out what it’s really like to be an entrepreneur. The Programme runs from September to May and students get to do everything a real life entrepreneur would do from coming up with the business idea to marketing, sales and preparing a business plan.

Longford LEO is a proud supporter of this Programme which fosters a culture of enterprise among young people in the community, helping them aspire to become the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. The competition gives students the opportunity to build an entrepreneurial mindset, to learn valuable lessons from the experience of working in a team, to apply learning in a practical way, and to explore possible career paths for the future.

At the end of the Programme in May, one student business from each category from each region gets to compete at the National Final for the ‘Student Enterprise of the Year’ award. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the SEP National Final 2021 will take place again online on Friday, 14th May, 2021.  Exceptional quality was seen at our online County Final held on Thursday, March 18th, 2021.  Further details to follow.
