« BackIT Tralee Enterprise Showcase takes place today

The IT Tralee Enterprise Showcase is taking place today and marks the end of Enterprise Month 2016.

Companies exhibiting will make Dragons’ Den style pitches at the Pitch Crawl competition, which has a prize of €5,000 seed funding.

Two people taking part are fourth year students of the Early Childhood Care & Education Honours Degree, Jackie Ryan and Nadine Lavery, who are hoping to establish an outside kindergarten in Kerry.

Jackie studied in Finland where 80 per cent of activities in childcare are outdoor; while Nadine is originally from Germany, where there’s a similar system called forest school.

Jackie says they’re now looking for a site for the outside kindergarten.
