David Manley Emerging Entrepreneur Awards


David Manley Emerging Entrepreneur Awards 2012

We are now accepting Applications for the David Manley Emerging Entrepreneur Awards 2013.

We are asking enterprise support agencies to forward this to their top 1 or 2 potential applicants. Deadlines for receipt of Applications is Friday 7th September 2012. Applications should be forwarded to mitchell@newmarket.ie by the enterprise support agency.

We want to make the application process as easy for emerging entrepreneurs (in business between 1 and 3 years) as possible. As such, we are asking applicants to submit their applications in a format they feel most comfortable with (e.g. video, presentation, document).  We will then shortlist 9 applicants. All 9 shortlisted applicants (3 Arts, 3 Business and 3 Social Entrepreneurs) will be asked to complete a more in-depth Application Form during the second application phase, which will start in October 2012. Finally, all 9 shortlisted applicants will be interviewed by our Judging Panel in November 2012. The Judging Panel is chaired this year by Dr. Chris Horn. The Awards will be presented at our Awards ceremony in January 2013.

The David Manley Emerging Entrepreneur Award nurtures the enterprising spirit across the spectrum of the Arts, Business and Social sectors. The Award celebrates its 10th year this  year, and continues to go from strength to strength.  It was established by a group of David Manley’s friends in the Dublin Chamber of Commerce to honour his contribution to, encouragement and mentoring of Entrepreneurs during his short life time. 

The overall Award Winner will receive in excess of €100,000 in consultancy and cash. Each runner-up will also receive a €1,000 cash prize. All 9 shortlisted entrepreneurs will receive payroll and accounting software and mentoring support.
