The Wexford Business Awards, now in their tenth year, are county wide awards recognising the entrepreneurialism, innovation, diversity and talent of businesses across all sectors. The awards honour Wexford’s industry leaders through the acknowledgement of innovative business processes, product development, enterprise, sustainability and overall business success.
Wexford Local Development is proud to be sponsoring the category of Wexford Social Enterprise Outstanding Achievement Award in this year’s event.
The objective of this category is to recognise the achievements of Wexford based Social Enterprises that make an outstanding contribution to their local community in terms of social, economic or environmental improvements.
To enter this category Award entrant’s must be able to meet the social enterprise definition as follows: “an enterprise that trades for a social/societal purpose, where at least part of its income is earned from its trading activity, is separate from government, and where the surplus is primarily reinvested in the social objective.”
We would like to encourage your Social Enterprise to participate under what we feel is a very important and well deserved category as it will allow the hard work and dedication of the people involved within the Social Enterprise sector across the county be acknowledged, promoted and rightfully recognised.
