Enterprising students from eleven schools across Cork city took part in a business plan writing day at Devere Hall in UCC recently.

Taking part in the business plan writing day as part of the Local Enterprise Office Cork City's Schools Enterprise Programme were mini-companies from Coláiste An Spioraid Naoimh, St Angela's College, North Presentation Secondary School, Nagle Community College, Bishopstown Community School, Scoil Mhuire, St Vincent's Secondary School, Christian Brothers College and St Aloysius Girls School.

Running from September to April, the Cork City Schools Enterprise Programme has seen over 500 students from 15 Cork schools participate in the programme.

Cork City Student Enterprise Co-Ordinator, Theresa Mulvihill delivered the business plan writing workshop, said at the event: “Today is about working with the students collectively to assist them with finalising their business plan. We have 11 schools with over 100 students here and it's been an absolute pleasure working with them during this process.

“There is a great enthusiasm, energy, motivation and focus. They are very aware they're coming to the final stage and it is interesting to see the competitiveness amongst them. I don't envy any judge having to choose; the quality is just so high.

“There are a number of business here that could certainly be pushed out as real businesses across a number of sectors from technology, food businesses, craft businesses and the attention to detail is phenomenal.”

During the day, students were able to focus on a number of areas within business from market research, networking to targeting customers and trouble shooting.

The business plan writing day was also in preparation for the City Final, which will take place on 12 March.
