Youth Entrepreneurship

Encouraging and promoting an enterprise culture at all levels within County Wicklow is a key activity of the Local Enterprise Office.

In seeking to develop a thriving enterprise culture in County Wicklow, it is important 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, so developing an entrepreneurial ethos within our schools is essential we do this through the Student Enterprise Programme.  Most recently the Local Enterprise Office is involved in 'Ireland's Best Young Entrepreneurcompetition which encourages young people who have business ideas, start up businesses and existing businesses.
