Student Entrepreneurs

If start-up is on your personal agenda, then there are all sorts of supports available at IADT to help you on your way.

For a little entrepreneurial inspiration, we’re lucky to have a wide network of successful entrepreneurs who join us regularly to share their insights into the journey of a start-up. These talks are open to all students. Speakers have included the founders of MeetingsBooker, Aladdin Schools, and WebSummit.

The IADT Student Enterprise Society organises events throughout the year, culminating in Enterprise Week – five days bursting with entrepreneurial inspiration and guidance. The highlight of Enterprise Week is the Dragons’ Den – where the student finalists pitch to a panel of judges and battle it out for cash prizes sponsored by The Student Enterprise Society and the Local Enterprise Office for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.

If your idea looks like it is growing legs, then our New Frontiers Programme might be the ideal next step, while locating in the Media Cube will give you daily access not only to great workspace, but also to a lively network of entrepreneurs who know all about the ups and downs of the start-up journey.
