Congratulations everybody!

Well done to all the mini-companies that started with an idea and managed to bring it to market in any form this year. This is a fantastic achievement in and of itself. Many people have great ideas throughout their lives, very few make something happen off the back of having that idea. The 850+ students who took part in this year’s Student Enterprise Programme in County Wexford now have the skills and experience to make it happen. Here’s to the entrepreneurs and problem-solvers of the future. Well done all.

A huge and sincere ‘thank you’ to all of the 34 teachers involved across the entire programme this year, many of whom are not mentioned above but who put in fantastic effort to help over students across the county turn their enterprise ideas into a reality.
