Final Call for Irish Business Design Challenge

“This is your last chance to enter the Irish Business Design Challenge … so don’t delay” urges Thomas McEvoy, Louth County Council’s Head of Enterprise.

The Irish Business Design Challenge is open to micro, small and medium enterprises across Ireland who are adapting to a changing world and re-thinking the way they do business.

Thomas explains “Looking at the world through your customers’ eyes, helps to unlock innovative ideas, new solutions and unique experiences. It helps your business to get ahead of the client, to design products and solutions that set your business apart from the rest. This competition celebrates businesses that have been creative, clever and innovative in delivering for their customers.”

A panel of expert judges will review all the applications. They will short-list standout customer-centred innovations. Shortlisted companies will benefit from publicity in a national media press and social media campaign, where the public will be invited to vote.

Finalists will be in with a chance to win a share in a €50,000 prize fund. Each category winner will receive €15,000, while runners-up will win €2,000 each.

He continues “This competition aims to highlight best practice examples of design and innovation across Ireland. Through the telling and sharing of these success stories, the IBDC also aims to demonstrate the role that design plays in our economy and society.”   

Thomas concludes “We encourage local businesses who have developed new products or redesigned their products or services to meet their customers’ needs to enter this competition. It’s a great opportunity to showcase the ingenuity and innovation of Louth businesses to the whole country through this exciting competition. The closing date is Monday next, 25th October so don’t miss out. Enter now on”

The Irish Business Design Challenge is an initiative of Design & Crafts Council Ireland in partnership with Enterprise Ireland and the Local Enterprise Offices, supported by the Department of Enterprise, Trade & Employment.
