Upper Bann MP David Simpson, Spokesperson for Business Innovation and Skills at Westminster, has welcomed the Bright Idea event in Banbridge Town Hall.
He said, “I was delighted to see the turn out in Banbridge Town Hall and the enthusiasm of the young people as they engaged together.
“I must commend the work of our local councils and staff for this initiative and the help and encouragement it offers to a new generation of entrepreneurs.
“It is a difficult time for any business and it is imperative that we do what we can to encourage and support our young people.”
“I look forward to hearing of how each of them develop through the programme and in years to come hearing of their success in business.”
