The Biz Factor @ RDS April 28th



BizWorld Enterprise of the Year 2016.

Teams from Limerick, Westmeath, Galway and Dublin have earned the coveted space of one of eight school finalists where they will pitch their ideas to judges from the entrepreneurial, tech and business community. Lord Mayor of Dublin will present the prizes on the day.

BizWorld Ireland promotes entrepreneurship skills for 10-13 year olds. We deliver workshops in primary schools nationwide, where students learn about money management and enterprise in fun and creative ways. Instilling an entrepreneurial spirit in children from a young age and developing their awareness of financial management, means they are equipped to become financially responsible members of society. The skills children develop in BizWorld Ireland workshops are the most sought-after skills in the workforce today: creativity, collaboration, communication, teamwork, negotiation.

Students work in teams to learn and undertake the tasks involved in setting up a business. They work together to agree and negotiate the roles, responsibilities and structures with the objective of presenting their financial and marketing strategy and plan to a recognised business person (“The dragon”) at the end of the workshop. During the program, students will be guided in learning and improving their communication, logical thinking and confidence building skills in a dynamic and fun learning environment.
