The undergraduate competition is the Student enterprise Awards. For the first time in the history of the competition it will be hosted on your door step at Coleraine campus. The 2009 Student Awards, sponsored jointly by Enterprise Ireland, Invest Northern Ireland and Cruickshanks are once again offering third level students across Ireland the chance to compete for the coveted title of College Entrepreneurs of the Year and win a share in the incredible prize fund totalling €50,000 cash & Mentor Support. The awards scheme is open to students from all academic disciplines and courses of study. Regardless of your chosen field, if you’re a third level student with a novel idea that you think has commercial potential, then this competition is for you. It could even be the start of something really big - your very first step towards establishing your own successful business. Or maybe you might be able to sell on your idea and obtain royalty income from the manufacturing/selling rights. All you need to do is demonstrate to the judges that your business idea is viable, well thought out and well researched and you’re on your way! Ideally your idea should be based on a manufacturing project or an internationally traded service.
