Google, Enterprise Ireland and the Local Enterprise Offices have jointly announced they are renewing their partnership to help upskill Irish SMEs by launching the 2023 You’re The Business competition

This initiative aims to reward businesses across Ireland that have demonstrated a commitment to digital at different stages of their journey, from those who have launched a website, through to those who are just starting to export. 

Expert Mentorship

The successful SMEs selected by a panel of established judges, will receive a digital support package from Google which includes a €1,000 Google ads package as well as expert mentorship across a range of technical areas that will help them to develop their business. 

An additional prize of a video creation kit will also be awarded to one SME that has demonstrated great efforts in promoting their business online.

Digital Enhancement

SMEs will be invited to submit a video no longer than two minutes in duration detailing what their business means to them as well as an example of how they have used digital to enhance their business. 

Entries are open now until October 31st 2023. 

'Digital Journey'

“We were so inspired by last year’s entries that really showed how SMEs strived to get their business online and how being online has helped them to succeed and grow, both domestically and further afield," said Cera Ward, managing director at Google Ireland.

"We are excited to launch this year’s competition and look forward to learning about more SMEs, their challenges, and digital ambitions."

"Google wants to support these companies as they take the next steps on their digital journey.”
