The Limerick Roadshow was one of a series of free-to-attend events taking place across the country during March and April which aim to encourage, support and drive the ambition of female entrepreneurs nationally by showcasing thriving Irish business women and entrepreneurs.

The Elevator Pitch competition offers a cash prize package sponsored by Facebook worth €2,000 at each location, as well as additional prizes worth up to €1,000.

Ms Zalech will receive a prize package that is designed to support her on her business journey, including:

  • 10 sessions with Enterprise Ireland Mentors and attendance at Enterprise Ireland’s Excel at Export Selling training programme
  • Annual membership of Network Ireland

Guest speakers at the event were Sharon O’Dwyer of Greentech Plastics and Dr Tara Dalton, Ex-Stokes Bio and representatives from Enterprise Ireland, LEO Limerick and Network Ireland were on hand to discuss the range of supports available to female entrepreneurs and those thinking of starting their own businesses. The event also provided an opportunity to network with entrepreneurs and business people.
