About The Entrepreneur Experience®

The Entrepreneur Experience® is a unique opportunity for Emerging Entrepreneurs to gain advice and mentoring from some of Ireland’s most successful business leaders.  This 24 hour experience includes networking, workshops and presentations. The fifth Entrepreneur Experience® is taking place  on the 27th and 28th March in Ballymaloe, Shanagarry, Co. Cork.

We select 24 Emerging Entrepreneurs to participate in three distinct groups of Start-ups and Entrepreneurs, they are:

  • Entrepreneurs with a new idea,
  • Entrepreneurs with an investor ready proposition, or

We invite 24 Seasoned Entrepreneurs, some of Ireland and Europe's most successful business leaders, to share their experiences and inspiration. Each Seasoned Entrepreneur mentors and coaches an Emerging Entrepreneur over the 24 hours. Each year there are some old and new faces, for an idea of who they are see the list of Seasoned Entrepreneurs from 2014.

Be prepared - this is not for the faint hearted!
