Participants will have access to a package of supports, including mentorship, funding from Enterprise Ireland and access to resources including hot-desk facilities at IADT Media Cube and NovaUCD.

Media Cube enterprise and innovation manager Ann Marie Phelan said:  “We are delighted to be working with the team at NovaUCD in delivering the New Frontiers programme for Enterprise Ireland.

“This new partnership will allow us to consolidate a myriad of enterprise supports and will go a long way to supporting startup companies in the local region while providing them with expert insight and access to innovative practice-led research in design, technology, and entrepreneurship.”

The first programme will commence in October and is now open for phase one applications here.
