Shortlist Announced For Carlow Final of National Enterprise Awards 2024

Carlow County Council’s Local Enterprise Office have announced the shortlist of 24 local businesses who will compete for the honour of representing Carlow at the 2024 National Enterprise Awards.  We at Carlow Chamber are delighted to see so many chamber members as highlighted below, feature in this year’s awards.

The National Enterprise Awards are the leading forum for recognising the success of small businesses in Ireland. The awards are organised by the Local Enterprise Offices and are held annually. Each county selects its most vibrant small business as its representative and the successful business will make a presentation on their growth strategy and take part in an intensive questions and answers session with an experienced panel of entrepreneur judges to compete in the national competition. The National Enterprise Awards are held in the Mansion House, Dublin in May when Ireland’s Enterprise of the Year is announced.

This year the Local Enterprise Office will host an awards ceremony in the Woodford Dolmen Hotel to recognise the vibrancy of businesses in Carlow and to announce the business who will represent the county as “Carlow’s Enterprise of the Year” at the National Enterprise Awards.
