Atlantic Star Consulting Wins Best Startup in Sligo at IBYE Awards

Atlantic Star Consulting has been announced as the winner of the ‘Best Start-Up Business’ category in the Sligo leg of the 2019 Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur competition.

This competition is part of a nationwide search launched by Minister Heather Humphreys and Minister Pat Breen to find Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneurs (IBYE). The six winners and runners-up were chosen from 15 local finalists and will now share a €50,000 investment fund.

IBYE, now in its fifth year, is a nationwide youth enterprise initiative to help 18-to-35 year olds with an innovative business idea, new start-up or established business. In 2019, 1,644 young entrepreneurs entered the IBYE programme, which is an initiative of the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation and supported by Enterprise Ireland and local authorities.

The county final was hosted by Head of Enterprise at Sligo County Council, John Reilly while Mayor of Sligo Municipal District, Councillor Rosaleen O’Grady addressed the audience and presented the participants with their awards.

At the event, John Reilly, Head of Enterprise with Sligo County Council said:

“As our winners clearly demonstrate, youth entrepreneurship is thriving here in Sligo. IBYE is about discovering local potential and nurturing that talent through financial supports, mentoring, training and networking opportunities. In 2019, Local Enterprise Office Sligo supported 15 young entrepreneurs through the IBYE competition and over 70 young entrepreneurs in total, since the competition began in 2014. We want to build on that success by supportting Sligo’s young entrepreneurs today and into the future.”

Atlantic Star Consulting will leverage this opportunity to develop high-quality market intelligence services, providing global blue-chip clients and niche local players with valuable insights on the fast-growing Irish structured finance sector.
