Regional Runner-Up in Young Entrepreuner Scheme 2002/2003

The Young Entrepreuner Scheme, sponsored by Golden Vale, awards students who show great entrepreunership and great ideas, it is no surprise then, to see spudmurphy design feature in this highly respected scheme. Firstly, we submitted a business report which documented every part of what the company is, what it does and how it does it.

Progressing on from the business report, successful candidates are then invited to attend a trade fair in which they can showcase their products and their company. Entrants are then subject to an interview by a panel of judges who then decide the winners. The judges gave the following opinions regarding our Web Design Packages - 'The Best Products I've Seen'.
