Linda O'Higgins, Environmental Research Institute

As a research scientist immersed in the minute details of a niche subject, my perspective on the start-up environment was foggy, at best. Myriam's programme however, provided me with a clear roadmap for navigating the often rocky road to commercialisation.

GatewayUCC’s SPRINT Accelerator Programme gave me the opportunity to build a solid foundation of the essentials needed to progress my research toward commercialisation. The seminars are led by industry experts and experienced entrepreneurs who offer a wealth of support and provide great opportunities to build a strong business network.
