Aimée Louise Carton, Graduate MSc in Entrepreneurship. Founder of KeepAppy, Dublin
“A year and a half ago, I sat in my kitchen writing an application for the MSc in Entrepreneurship at Trinity Business School. Little did I know that within that time I would meet incredible friends, professionals and thought leaders, I would find my co-founder, start a business and get the opportunity represent Ireland by pitching our start-up, KeepAppy, on a global stage in Silicon Valley in September 2019. The MSc in Entrepreneurship was so different to either of my previous two degrees, as it emphasised practical learning and a real-world approach to entrepreneurship. For example, instead of learning the theory around setting up a business, we were given one week to do just that during the Business Model Innovation course. From day one, myself and my peers were challenged by successful entrepreneurs and investors who pushed us to be the best that we could be. Additionally, the Trinity community allowed us to work with Enactus Ireland through the TCD Enactus Society, which gave us incredible access to Enactus’ amazing partners, like KPMG, Unilever, Aer Lingus and Bank of Ireland to name but a few. While the year was tough, at every stage we could count on the staff in Trinity Business School for help when we needed it, such as my incredible thesis supervisor, Dr. Sheila Cannon, who has been a pillar of guidance and advice! This help meant that although there were lows, at no point where we ever alone or at a loss for what to do.”
