TRALEE’S future workforce, decision-makers and employers have joined together with Tralee Chamber Alliance during Enterprise Month to outline their big ideas for the county capital.

Throughout Enterprise Month, Transition Year students from Tralee will formulate their big ideas and opinions on what developments they believe should take place in their town and what kind of business or activities they would like to see in Tralee.

The President of Tralee Chamber Alliance, John Drummey, said: “It only takes one good idea to create a success story and we are confident that the future success of Tralee lies in the safe hands of today’s youth. We want the Transition Years students to show us their entrepreneurial skills and to tell us about their ideas on what they would like to do with their town now and into the future. Tralee Chamber Alliance continually strives to lead growth and foster pride, and collaborations such as this with the TY students will certainly help us all achieve that goal.”

The TY students will present their ‘big ideas’ to a panel of judges, consisting of business owners from Tralee and members of Tralee Chamber Alliance in Room S114, IT Tralee (North Campus) at 2pm on Monday, March 20.

Now in its 4th year, ‘Enterprise Month’ continues to shine a spotlight on just some of the enterprise activities on offer all year round across the County of Kerry.

The final two weeks of the month are hosted by IT Tralee and the month ends with the Cantillon Conference, this year themed ‘Building Borderless Business’, which focuses on fintech and cyber security. Tickets are available to purchase now at www.cantillon.ie.
