Cookstown Enterprise has warmly welcomed 30 students from Holy Trinity Primary School to celebrate and encourage the future entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
The event was organised to promote and create enterprise awareness as a viable career option in the future in partnership with Holy Trinity Primary School.
The event encouraged students to think creatively about setting up their own business and explore the option of self-employment.
The pupils had a business visit at Embroiderus Ireland Ltd (tenant company at the centre), where they see first-hand the day to day running of a business along with an opportunity to ask the manager lots of questions including, why they decided to open up their own business; unique selling point of their product/service; marketing, finance, customers and staffing.
Chairman of Cookstown Enterprise Centre, Mr Trevor Wilson and Jim Eastwood Centre Manager welcomed the pupils from Holy Trinity Primary School. The event was sponsored by Tayto, Rockwell Water and Food for the Soul provided some pancake refreshments.
Andrea McGuckin, Business Development Officer said: “We are excited to work with Holy Trinity Primary School in promoting the option of self-employment as a viable career option in the near future.
“ We believe sowing the seed of enterprise at a young age is important for our future economy.
“Cookstown Enterprise is a one stop shop for pre start, start up and post start business support along with property and room hire. “We celebrate 25 years in business this year so it is paramount that we acknowledge our progress but also build for the future by establishing links with the local schools.”
