Entrepreneurship & Start-Ups

A critical objective of LYIT is to develop the culture of innovation and entrepreneurship within the Institute and to help individuals develop and apply their entrepreneurial talent.  To this end, there are a number of ongoing initiatives at LYIT:

New Frontiers is Ireland’s national entrepreneur development programme that is delivered at a local level by the Institutes of Technology. It is designed to help people like you, who have an innovative business idea, to establish and run your own companies. It will provide you with a package of supports to help accelerate your business’s development and to equip you with the skills and contacts that you need to be future business leaders.  This programme is being run in association with Institute of Technology Sligo. The participants receive training, mentoring, space in CoLab and financial support as appropriate.
