Invest Northern Ireland supported the event where 650 young entrepreneurs crammed into Titanic Belfast to be honoured at Celebrate Success 2015. The charity has worked with students from St Mark’s High School and St Columban’s College throughout the academic year so far to support them as they start businesses and gain entrepreneurship skills. Speaking at the event, Education Minister John O’Dowd praised the achievements of the young entrepreneurs in developing skills that will benefit them in life and work. He said, “Young people of today are the leaders and innovators of tomorrow and we need to equip them with the right skills and knowledge for them to succeed in life and work. “In order to build a vibrant economy, we need to ensure that young people are encouraged not just to follow traditional paths but those that may lead to exciting new career paths, such as starting a new business.” Stephen Wightman, Invest Northern Ireland also commented: “Entrepreneurship is core to any growing economy and it is important that we inspire our young people through the world of business and provide them with the skills and confidence they need to pursue their ambition.” For more information about Young Enterprise and to see how you can get involved visit yeni.co.uk
