We want to empower our students to forge their own paths during and after their time at Trinity. We support early-stage startups and entrepreneurs by offering them the opportunity to participate in our incredible accelerator programmes.
These programmes are focussed on learning, networking, and progressing ideas, and we do this by providing funding, co-working space on campus, access to expert mentors, and a structured, elite programme of workshops and fireside chats.
LaunchBox, Tangent's Student Accelerator
LaunchBox, Tangent’s Student Accelerator was founded in 2013 and since that time has seen 70 startups move through the 12-week summer programme. LaunchBox is all about taking the first strides towards making your business or social enterprise a reality, while having a transformational experience. So far our alumni startups have created over 120 jobs, raised over €9.2m in funding. Each of the student entrepreneurs who’ve gotten into the programme have had a transformational experience that’s stood to them in their life after university.
