Any previous entrepreneurship experience before you joined Student Inc.?


What connections did you make on the programme? 

have made so many connections with professional advisors on all aspects of business. I was paired with a wonderful mentor who helped me understand what was needed to refine my product offering. Not forgetting my talented programme peers from IT Tralee, CIT, and UCC. 

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

 Go for it. I think it is the most incredible programme for student entrepreneurs as you get to work on your own business fulltime. At the end you will be amazed at what you have accomplished and have initial seed funding to progress even faster.  

What was your greatest learning from the programme?  

What makes a good business and how to go from idea to business plan. I know that writing a business plan can be difficult for many entrepreneurs. The workshops were structured in a such a way that I learned how to focus othe fundamentals and complete a plan section week by week.
