MTU Entrepreneurship Students Showcase

Wednesday 09 March 2022

A showcasing of some of the fantastic ideas on inclusive products and services developed by MTU Entrepreneurship students. 

  • Stephen Foley, Ioan Simon, Ian Shorten, Jamie Cole and Conor O Driscoll will present their idea ‘Refresh’ - an online platform aimed at a particular marginalised group of people (Ex-Prisoners) who show an interest and are determined to re-integrate into society utilising employment, education, or even personal development after serving their prison sentence.
  • Tommy O'Callaghan, Michael O'Driscoll, Sean O'Neill, Peter O'Leary & Kevin O'Riordan will present their idea ‘Together with You’, a social enterprise thar provides an informal sit-in service for the elderly in communities. General conversations and building companionships will tackle the issue of isolation and loneliness for a central segment of our society.
  • Grainne Holmes, Rebecca Healy, Daniela Kaiser & Ava Hartigan will present their idea the ‘V beanie’. V beanie is a stylish therapeutical hat for all seasons, designed to minimise outside stimulation for children and young adults with sensory issues such as autism
  • Andrew Corkery and Shauna Courtney will present their idea ‘Expresso Yourself’ – a café specifically aimed at members of the queer community. The café would act as a fun, trendy, creative and safe space where members of the community, and their allies, could come to grab a bite, relax, mingle and be their true self.

This event is over and registration is now closed.
