IADT Student Enterprise Bootcamp

The IADT Student Enterprise Bootcamp commenced in 2016 to support IADT students and recent graduates from a variety of courses and disciplines in the development of their business ideas and to encourage cross-collaboration amongst the students.

The Department of Entrepreneurship at IADT has been very closely involved in this Bootcamp and have incorporated it as a module on some of their academic programmes.  Students at this year’s bootcamp came from a broad variety of disciplines including applied psychology, television, digital media, business, new media studies, art, design for film and more.

The Bootcamp takes place annually with two evening modules per week from the end of January to mid-March.   Modules cover a variety of topics including market research, sales, digital marketing, finance, funding, Artificial Intelligence, Sustainability and more.

A key element of the programme includes the mentoring of the students - each participant is matched with a suitable mentor - usually entrepreneurs who are currently based at the Media Cube, or a representative from one of our Alumni companies.

The culmination of the bootcamp lies in the final pitch night (‘Pitch Perfect’), where students have the opportunity to pitch to a panel of external stakeholders and are awarded prizes and certificates.   Many thanks to LEO DLR and Enterprise Equity (Media Cube Venture capitalist in residence) for your support with the judging.

Congratulations to the winners of the 2024 Pitch Perfect prizes!
