IGNITE Start-Up Incubation Programme

Our flagship programme, IGNITE, is a comprehensive start-up incubation programme for founders working full-time on their start-up. The programme is open to recent graduates in any discipline from any 3rd level institution in Ireland. It includes essential workshops and seminars, entrepreneur guest speakers, mentoring with experienced entrepreneurs and business owners, funding and workspace offered on a flexible basis so you get the skills and knowledge, advice and guidance you need when you need it.

And we don’t take equity in your start-up.
