Borrisoleigh Students Attend BT Business Bootcamp
Two students from St Joseph’s College, Borrisoleigh participated in the BT Business Bootcamp which was held on the Nova UCD campus last week in Dublin.
The two students , David Moran and Liam Ryan were part of the 29 lucky academics selected from over 1100 students who participated in the BT Young Scientist Exhibition back in January where they won two awards for their project ‘’Unlicensed to Kill’’.
Throughout the week the boys learned all about business, marketing and entrepreneurship. On the final day they had to pitch a business idea as part of a 5 student team to a panel of Ireland’s leading businessmen including the head of BT, the CEO of Enterprise Ireland and also Dr. Tony Scott who founded the Young Scientist Exhibition back in 1965. A great week was had by all who participated in the bootcamp. It was also a marvellous achievement and opportunity for them.
