Enter into the Northern Ireland entrepreneurial spirit!

Apr 05, 2007

There are only five weeks left to enter your bid to be named the most enterprising place in Northern Ireland.

The regional heats of Enterprising Britain 2007, a nationwide search to find the UK’s capital of enterprise, close on Friday 4th May 2007 and towns, cities, places or areas across Northern Ireland are being encouraged to enter before it’s too late.

The competition, launched in February by Invest Northern Ireland, is looking to identify Northern Ireland’s most enterprising hotspot: a place that has created jobs, brought communities together, and made a real difference to local businesses and local people.  The winning entry will go forward to compete in the national finals of Enterprising Britain 2007, competing against enterprising places from all across the UK.

Graham Davis, Invest NI Director of Local Economic Development said: “Northern Ireland is rapidly becoming home to some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs and enterprises in the United Kingdom.  Enterprising Britain 2007 is an opportunity to be recognised for this and show the rest of the UK why Northern Ireland should be rightly viewed as an entrepreneurial hub.”

The competition, run by the Department of Trade and Industry, in partnership with the Regional Development Agencies and Devolved Administrations, is open to towns, cities and communities as well as public-private partnerships between public authorities and entrepreneurs, educational programmes, and business organisations.

The regional shortlist will be announced on Monday 14th May 2007 before the regional winner is announced on Monday 28th May 2007.
