Aer Lingus has partnered with the Fingal Dublin Chamber and the Local Enterprise Office (LEO) Fingal to launch the Aer Lingus TakeOff Foundation Start-Up Awards which will celebrate and support the talent of up-and-coming businesses based in the Fingal area on their journey to success.

The prize package received by each winning start-up will consist of an allocation of European and long-haul international flights

The new TakeOff Foundation Start-Up Awards will give three talented business owners the opportunity to expand their outreach to international markets for business purposes by mentoring up and coming businesses in the Fingal region and assisting with their flight needs and business profile. The prize package received by each winning start-up will consist of an allocation of European and long-haul international flights, business mentoring with key staff across a range of Aer Lingus business departments, and exposure for each start-up within the airline’s Cara Magazine.
This initiative is targeted at start-ups based in Fingal that have been trading in the Irish market for the last 18 months at least, and for no more than three years. Successful candidates will be selected following a shortlisting phase and subsequent presentation to a judging panel consisting of representatives from Aer Lingus, LEO Fingal and the Fingal Chamber of Commerce.
The opening date for entries is 12.02.18 and the closing date is 11.03.18. Interested candidates can apply by downloading the application form from https://www.aerlingus.com/about-us/takeoff-foundation/start-up-awards/ and emailing the completed application to [email protected]
