The Student Incubation Programme, also known as Student Inc., is a programme set up to support and encourage student entrepreneurs to develop new business.  This three month accredited programme is run over the summer months in the Rubicon Centre at CIT.  

Students receive seed funding of €4,000, exposure to start-up companies, business plan related training and mentoring sessions, skills development and fully serviced office space.  They also have contact with the Enterprise Interns who can give guidance and allow access to useful resources and information.
