Newry Chamber is delighted to host a FREE breakfast seminar to promote entrepreneurship. The event is part of Newry, Mourne and Down Enterprise Week and will feature four young local entrepreneurs who were finalists at the recent Greater Newry Area Business Awards 2021.

They will share their inspiring stories so far, giving an insight into how they started, how they have created employment and what they have learnt along the way.

A panel discussion and audience Q&A, hosted by MC Deborah Loughran will follow.

The event is aimed at those who have recently started their own venture, those who are considering it and Business Studies Students from local schools and colleges. The seminar aims to highlight self-employment as a career option and how to do it.
