Student Inc. Programme Highlights

The whole experience was a highlight, the support from the staff at the Tom Crean centre made it a very supportive environment. Every day people want to see you do well, I found that very motivating.

Any previous entrepreneurship experience before you joined Student Inc.?


What connections did you make on the programme?

I made many connections in the programme, I partnered with Moiblity Genie, a company who were operating from the Tom Crean Centre, I made a partnership with the Gleneagle hotel, I also landed a big contract with Cork Prison doing therapy and rehab.


What advice would you give to someone thinking of applying to Student Inc.?

Make as much use of the time as you can, 3 months goes so quick, give it 100% everyday. I had so many ideas at the start but I wasn’t very specific about what I wanted my business to do, get specific and focus on one thing.  If your main goal is to set up a business you will get there if you stick with it.
