IADT Student Enterprise Bootcamp

Register your interest

The IADT Student Enterprise Bootcamp commenced in 2016 to support  IADT students and recent graduates from different courses of study/disciplines in the development of their business ideas. The aim of this programme is to provide the IADT students/graduates with the skills to become entrepreneurs and test the market validation of their ideas. The Bootcamp takes place annually with two evening modules per week from the end of January to mid-March, ending with a 'Pitch Perfect' session where the participants make their pitch to a panel of judges for prizes.

Some key elements of the programme include 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 second is a communications module, where participants are given individual presentation skills training so they are ready to make an 'elevator' pitch for their business.

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.
