A local security company is lending its support to a budding young entrepreneur.

Mercury Security Management presented Mark Ireland, 16, from Strangford Integrated College, with a new laptop after he was short-listed as a finalist in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style contest Northern Ireland Science Park (NISP).

The Generation Innovation Internship Prize, in collaboration with local entrepreneurs Tom O’Gorman and Jim Finnegan, invited young entrepreneurs to submit their business idea with the final six receiving a two-month internship at NISP along with a £2,000 bursary to assist in the development of their idea.

Now Mark is spending his summer participating in the Generation Innovation 2015 internship, before making his final pitch in September.
