Waterford students to be honoured at Young Entrepreneur Awards

Students from Waterford will be among those honoured at the Youth Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2018 in the coming weeks.

Eighteen innovative start-up businesses, involving over 50 young people, will be celebrated at the event with companies representing Leitrim, Donegal, Sligo, Laois, Offaly, Dublin, Cork, Tipperary, Waterford and Westmeath. 

The finalists will pitch their businesses to a panel of judges from some of Ireland's leading companies as they battle it out to be crowned Youth Entrepreneur of the Year 2018.  The young entrepreneurs have reached the final having won their county and regional finals earlier in the year.

For the first time this year, in addition to the presentation of the overall ‘Youth Entrepreneur of the Year Award’ there will also a ‘Best Innovation Award’ and a ‘Special Recognition Award’.
