Foreign students innovating in Ireland

The Think Outside the Box competition (formerly the Student Enterprise Awards) offers third level students from all academic disciplines and courses of study the opportunity to realise their entrepreneurial ambitions.

Sponsored by Enterprise Ireland, Invest Northern Ireland, Mammoth Brand Consultancy and Cruickshank Intellectual Property Attorneys, all 3rd level students need to do is demonstrate to the judges that their business idea is viable, well thought out and well researched. 

There's a first place cash prize of €10,000 to be won plus the opportunity to avail of €12,500 worth of specialist advice and assistance to potentially help turn your enterprise idea into a business reality.
