Wicklow IBYE finalist preparing for final
Wicklow's finalist in Ireland's Best Young Entrepreneur competition attended an event this week in Government Buildings in the run-up to the competition's final.
Ross Lawless from Arklow, and other Ireland's Best Young Entrepreneur (IBYE) finalists met Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys and the Minister for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection, Pat Breen.
Co-founder of CALT (Computer Aided Life Technology) Dynamics, Ross was named the winner in the best start-up category in the regional 'Best Young Entrepreneurs' awards earlier this summer.
The finalists had the opportunity to chat with the Ministers ahead of the IBYE final, which will be held on September 15 in Dublin. The entrepreneurs also received pitch training at Google offices in Dublin.
Vibeke Delahunt, Head of Enterprise, Wicklow Local Enterprise Office said: 'Ross has been an exceptional entrepreneur to work with right through the IBYE process. He has an excellent attitude to furthering his business and that makes our job a lot easier. He is a credit to Wicklow and a further example of how the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in the region.
'We wish him the very best of luck in the national final and we look forward to continuing to work with him beyond the final to help him grow Calt Dynamics.'
