All the hard work paid off!!

The lead up to lunch break involved cleverly prepared videos, artistic sketching and dedicated groups working in to their break to perfect their final presentations for their business idea.  Each of the five groups went to present in front of a panel of judges to get some valuable feedback on their business ideas.  The judging panel was made up of Brian Mcgrath, Head of the school of Business in CIT, Gerard O Donovan, Head of Faculty of Business and Humanities in CIT, Dr Noel Murray, Lecturer Marketing & International Business and Claire O Regan, Branch Manager of the Bank of Ireland CIT Branch.

Once the business pitches were over the participants received their certificates for successfully completing the enterprise camp for the week.  Dr Brendan Murphy, President of CIT congratulated the participants on their ideas and presented the certificates.

Another busy and very productive enterprise camp has come to an end and what a great week it was!!  All the teams put in great work and commitment to produce business ideas with fantastic potential.

After a morning working together to perfect their business pitches the teams pitched their ideas to a panel of judges.  The judges commented on the professional manner in which they all presented and how cleverly thought out their ideas where.  All of the market research and work on their ideas has obviously paid off!!

Some of the ideas included; self-repairing screens for phones, an app for scanning clothing styles, a smart fuel management system, a phone case that protects your earphones and waterproof socks.

Many of the students asked us to pick our favourite but we were so impressed with all the hard work it would be like picking our favourite child!!!  As I said “you are all winners in my eyes” 🙂

The groups were then presented with their certificates for completing the camp by the CIT president and ACE the innovation mascot of CIT.

The enterprise camp staff would like to wish each participant the very best of luck in the future and don’t forget we are always here to offer any advice along the way if needed.

All good things must come to an end and today was the day.  A bunch of enthusiastic camp participants came in this morning to finish their business presentations in their groups.  After a bit of finishing and practicing, it was time to pitch their ideas to our judging panel.  The judges included experienced entrepreneur, Myles Murray of PMD Solutions, Sylvia Coakley, Bank of Ireland CIT branch manager, Orla Flynn, Vice President for External Affairs in CIT and Gerard O’Donovan, Head of Faculty of Business and Humanities in CIT.

All of the judges agreed that the ideas, the thought behind the ideas and the presentation styles were all of a very high standard.  Sylvia treated all to a free money box so they can start saving towards their successful future business venture!!

After the presentations the groups were awarded certificates for their participation in the camp over the week accompanied by ACE, CIT’s innovation robot.  After all of the hard work we feel the certificates and recognition of their hard work is well deserved and have no doubt that we will be seeing some of these entrepreneurial bunch around again to discuss the many options that await them.  We look forward to seeing some of them back around CIT and the Rubicon centre in the future.

And now for the big finish

We were delighted with the success of the week and how eager and motivated all of the young entrepreneurs were.  After impressing their audience with their presentations the camp participants were all presented with certificates from visiting MEP, Mr Seán Kelly and CIT president, Dr Brendan Murphy.
