Enterprise & Innovation Week

IT Sligo is set to hold their annual Enterprise and Innovation week running from the 19th to the 23rd of March 2012.

In a new addition to the already hugely successful week, Friday the 23rd is aimed at students from IT Sligo as well as Transition Year students from secondary schools in the surrounding area. The day entitled “Inspirational Business Day” is designed to inspire students into launching their own business. The day will include talks from successful businesses within the Innovation Centre. These include Hodson Moore Pathology, Poll Daddy, and Epona Biotech as well as a tour of the Innovation Centre itself, and up for grabs on the day is a computer tablet!

The event is being organised by Year 3 students of Bachelor of Business in Marketing with Event Management and Public Relations. The day aims to inspire the entrepreneurial spirit within young people. Niall McEvoy, Head of Innovation at the Innovation Centre said of the day “Inspirational Business Day is a new feature for Enterprise and Innovation Week 2012. This day is completely organised by our Event Management and PR students and gives them a real world project to play with. I commend their enthusiasm and energy.”

While broadly aimed towards students the event is open to the general public and will take place on Friday 23rd of March from 10 until 1 at the Innovation Centre on the campus of IT Sligo. It promises to be an informative and inspirational day. For further information please contact Laura on 0879781370.
