New Frontiers Phase 2 is launching at IADT on March 22nd. New Frontiers is the national programme for developing entrepreneurs, funded by Enterprise Ireland. IADT Media Cube are proud to be leading the programme in partnership with NovaUCD.
The programme is a three-phase programme designed to support early stage entrepreneurs who have an innovative business idea and the potential to scale. Phase one focuses on validating the idea. Phase 2 is a 6-month intensive programme to develop the business plan and investor ready pitch and includes a tax free stipend. Phase 3 is continued support.
Before Christmas IADT Media Cube in partnership with NovaUCD welcomed 32 participants onto Phase 1. The programme was held virtually but it did not hamper the engagement of the entrepreneurs. Workshops were held on the Business Model Canvas, Marketing, Finance, to name a few as well as weekly virtual coffees which gave the participants a space to share & reflect.
We are now gearing up for Phase 2 which will commence on the 22nd of March. We received an incredible response to our call out for applications and 13 entrepreneurs will now be chosen to embark on the 6-month journey of growing their business.
Expect to see some new faces around the Media Cube as we are planning an in-person programme now that Government guidelines permit.
