The BEST awards (Ballinasloe Entrepreneurial Skills Tournament) is an annual competition for student entrepreneurs. The competition now in it's 8th year challenges students from a number of schools around the Ballinasloe Area to come up with creative business ideas and concepts that could be developed into successful businesses.
After the students have honed and developed their business concepts they are invited topitch their idea’s to a panel of judges in a dragon’s den style competition. A number of the most promising ideas are short listed for the finals which took place in the Shearwater Hotel in Ballinasloe on the 9th of March.
I had the pleasure of being invited to document the event and put together a short film that captures the spirit and events of the night. You can check out the highlights of the event in the video below:
