The Student Enterprise Programme give secondary school students in Ireland a chance to find out what it’s really like to be your own boss and run your own business


The Student Enterprise Programme (SEP) is the biggest enterprise competition for students in Ireland.

It helps students to grasp skills associated with running a real enterprise including team work, managing production and finances, organising sales and marketing campaigns and liaising directly with customers, judges and the media.

As well as finding out what life is like when you are own boss, students could also be in with a chance of winning some great prizes including:

  • National Trophy and plenty of Cash Prizes
  • Local and National Media Profile including TV and Radio appearance

Introducing enterprise to students this way can help to create more entrepreneurs in the future.

The Local Enterprise network provides significant support to teachers and students involved in the competition and we would encourage all schools to sign up and get their students involved.
