Student Enterprise Finals

1st and 2nd year Student Enterprise finalists were very busy this week working on their business reports in preparation for the final of the Fingal Enterprise Awards. The finals will take place online and the results will be announced on March 15th. Loreto Balbriggan has had a long and very successful tradition with the Student Enterprise competition, with some of our past winners representing Ireland in the European Student Enterprise Competition. We wish all our budding entrepreneurs the very best of luck. Some of the companies are still selling, so students and staff should watch out for ‘pop up’ stalls at lunch time over the coming weeks.
