Lights! Camera! Action!

Today the WhiteLight Team hit Athlone for three days of filming with the incredible finalists in IBYE 2019. As Project and Event Managers for this brilliant competition, it is our first chance to meet the 24 finalists for 2019.

Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur 2019 is a nationwide competition to find young entrepreneurs who are developing brilliant ideas and businesses. It is an initiative of the Local Enterprise Offices, Enterprise Ireland and the Dept. of Business, Enterprise and Innovation and proudly supported by Google. The 2019 competition received a total of 1,644 applications by the closing date last March.

Blast from the past – these are the 2018 IBYE finalists. This week we’re looking forward to meeting the 2019 finalists.

From there, they proceeded to the County Finals, hosted by the 31 Local Enterprise Offices. 93 proceeded from County Finals to the Regional Finals which have just been completed.

We now have our 24 finalists who will competed in the categories and for the overall title of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur.

This stage of the competition is a busy time for the WhiteLight Consulting team. This week we decamp to the beautiful Hodson Bay Hotel in Athlone for three intensive days of filming and photography for the finalists. The material captured during these three days will be used in the IBYE social media, press packs, event graphics and the commemorative brochure.

It’s always exciting for us to meet the finalists in person, to discover their potential and to help them showcase their business. To follow the competition visit
