The panel of up-and-coming businesspeople includes Brendan Doherty, Connex Offsite Ltd, Natasha Daryaie, The Gym Guru, Dr Emma Cunningham-Idowu, Dr Emma Clinics and Aaron O’Malley, GreenQube Sustainable Living. They will share their inspiring stories so far and discuss what it takes become an entrepreneur. Each panellist was a finalist in the recent Greater Newry Business Awards.

Emma Mullen-Marmion, President of Newry Chamber, “Our region is well known for its entrepreneurial spirit. From the beginning of this year, the number of new business plans helped by the Go For It programme in the Greater Newry area has doubled from pre-pandemic levels.


We are proud of our entrepreneurial heritage, and this is something we want to nurture, cultivate and encourage as a Chamber, at all ages and stages of their careers.  The Young Entrepreneurs event will highlight our local role models to inspire those thinking about setting up on their own businesses. They have built their businesses, created employment and have exciting plans for the future.

It is important that new businesses are supported in the early stages.  This includes peer support and highlighting those organisations that can assist to help them grow further.  We would encourage anyone thinking about or who have recently started their own venture to attend this free event”.


NMD Enterprise Week 2021 takes place between Monday 8th November to Friday 12th November 2021 and is a week-long collection of economic supports, activities and workshop events aimed at making it easier for all Newry, Mourne and Down residents and businesses to live, work, start up and grow a business in the district.
