The CBC Ireland winner will receive extensive mentoring and support, including access to international events and mentorship programmes before attending the CBC Global Finals in Copenhagen, Denmark, on June 2-3, 2024. This includes all expenses paid for travel and participation in the international finals, offering networking opportunities with fellow entrepreneurs, international investors, and industry leaders.
Applicants can look forward to a chance to showcase their business, meet with foreign ambassadors, and connect with a global audience.
