Junior Achievement Company of the Year Limerick/Galway Regional Final will take place on the 15th of April hosted by Limerick Institute of Technology. Ten teams will compete for the chance to proceed to the nationals held in May. So let’s meet the Galway teams!
SmartStudy – Presentation Secondary School, Galway City.
SmartStudy Company has designed a website called the AlphaKey that is mobile accessible, like an app, for educational keywords in various subjects across the curriculum. It’s for Junior & Senior level students and teachers if they need it. Our Business aims to make study easier and more efficient for students, and to assist providers of education with the AlphaKey. There are nine students involved in the company: Marina Mayor Rocher, Abi McDonagh, Julia Titilincu, Tara Griffin, Jordanna Cassidy, Elaine Moylan, Megan Lee, and Aoife Boyle.
Snap Table – Calasanctius College, Oranmore, Co. Galway.
SnapTable was established in October 2014 when we brainstormed innovative ideas in the classroom. Our product is a key-ring that contains a pull out timetable which snaps back after use. The timetable itself is entirely customisable to each individual customer’s needs but it is clearly a product that will make life easier for every customer. Our main target audience are students in every town and city. SnapTable acts as an aid to help remind students of the times and location of all of their classes and is provided in an easily accessible, compact pull-out and snap back format on a key-ring that students can attach to their school bags or pencil case.
Of course SnapTable is not just for kids! Keeping fit and active is now a huge market so we will be hoping that gyms and outdoor fitness clubs will “snap” up our product. There are many other exciting uses for the SnapTable product which we intend to develop as we establish our production, distribution, sales and marketing channels.
Réalta le Chéile – Gairmscoil Mhuire, Athenry, Co. Galway
Réalta le Chéile is an innovative, creative and enterprising Transition Year mini – company based in Gairmscoil Mhuire, Athenry, Co. Galway. We picked the name Réalta le Chéile (Stars together) because in our opinion each student is a star in their own personal way. As a group we set out to produce our unique recipe book and promote and create awareness for Autism and to promote inclusion in our community. The idea of this product began back in September of 2014. Our recipe book contains many favourite recipes from different celebrities from around Ireland, England and Europe.
