Last year Paul Moore won IBYE’s ‘Best Start Up Business’ category from LEO Cork City, with his business Rebel Chilli, winning an investment of €15,000.
Rebel Chilli produces sauces that are totally unique, with each bottle bursting with fantastic flavour and real heat!
We spoke to Paul about his IBYE experience and here’s what he told us…
“The experience of participating in the IBYE competition helped both myself and the business in a number of different ways. It allowed me to interact with so many other people who, although from different businesses, had the same mind set as myself. It really expanded my network, and I am in regular contact with many of them still today.
“It also helped in terms of building the profile of the business as Rebel Chilli received a lot of exposure and attention throughout the competition. As well as this, the funds I received allowed me to drive specific areas of the business, specifically, taking on my first employee and expanding the range of products we offer.”
If like Paul, you have a start-up business, IBYE’s ‘Best Start-Up Business’ category could be the one for you.
A start-up business for IBYE is a business which has started trading (i.e.is generating revenue from sales.) and is less than 18 months in existence.
