I was absolutely delighted to be awarded Best Start-Up Business Runner Up prize last night in the South Dublin Final of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur!
It was an incredible experience which ran over the last few weeks and included a business workshop, a 2-day business plan bootcamp, meeting other entrepreneurs, writing a 5 year business plan for Happy Magazine and then finally pitching to the judges in a Dragon’s Den-style final yesterday.
I was absolutely honoured that the Judging Panel recognised Happy Magazine as an inspiring Start-Up Business and feel really positive and motivated for the future!
Taking part in IBYE 2019 has helped me develop a meaningful roadmap for the future of Happy Magazine and is something I would highly recommend to anyone with a new business in Ireland.
Thank you so much to the Local Enterprise Office South Dublin team for all the support and encouragement so far, and a very special thank you to my family and friends for all their support and encouragement through the competition. Hooray!
