AIB Proud to Support the Student Enterprise Award
This year is the first year of AIB’s involvement with the The Bolton Trust / DIT Student Enterprise Competition competition in a sponsorship role which is part of a 3 year sponsorship agreement. We are delighted to be supporting this initiative as it shows our commitment to students and enterprise and it is an exciting and promising partnership.
We are delighted to partner an Irish 3rd level Institution that is steeped in history and has been closely linked to Industry and the commercial world over the decades. We appreciate the dedication and hard work of the staff of DIT in helping potential entrepreneurs of the future.
The Student Enterprise Competition is an innovative way of encouraging would- be entrepreneurs to put into practice all that they have learned on their college course and develop a business plan - which of course is vital in terms of the essentials for any successful business. We have a dedicated SME Specialist from our AIB 1-4 Lr Baggot Street branch who is available to advise students on preparing their business plan. Email Alan.firstname.lastname@example.org
