Budding entrepreneurs were treated to a glimpse of the upcoming new design of the popular website EOY.TV, the official site for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards providing news and video content about the entrepreneurs.

Claire Harrington from Ernst & Young showcased some of the interesting videos from the site telling the stories of challenges and key decisions made by many of these successful entrepreneurs.

Claire also introduced the camp to some compassionate stories of social entrepreneurship where charitable businesses have used their business acumen to help others.

One example of this being local Cork entrepreneurs, Cully and sully, who travelled to Nepal to a remote area with no materials or infrastructure to provide for themselves.  The two businessmen offered ideas of how the locals could support themselves and continue to support themselves and the region.

These examples offered a great insight in to the many different opportunities out there for innovative entrepreneurs and hopefully offered food for thought for the future business leaders this week in the Rubicon Centre.
