I’ve found LaunchBox to be a fantastic programme, the people you meet, the teams you work with and the skills you pick up along the way are invaluable. I love the element of the co-working space, you get to bounce ideas off other teams and it really helps you to see insights into your start-up you may not have otherwise seen. For me, the networking has been an amazing aspect - you meet people who have been through it all before, and these people are willing to help you and give you advice on any problems you may have, and that to me has truly been an amazing part of this programme. If you’re someone who has an idea and a team and wants to really learn what it’s like to be working in the start-up eco-system, I definitely recommend you apply for LaunchBox. You won’t regret it! Also you get paid every week, really doesn’t get better than that!
Throughout the LaunchBox programme, I have had the pleasure to work and interact with a group of hard-working, intelligent, and devout entrepreneurs. The programme has offered workshops and networking events that have provided connections and skills that will be applied to all aspects of future growth of our start-up company, Fumi.
“If you’re in any way considering the Undergraduate Cert, you should just go for it, you have nothing to lose. In computer science especially, design thinking plays a big role. We wouldn’t cover it in our course, but a lot of what we do in terms of reiterating and recompiling so to speak revolves around design thinking.”
I would strongly recommend Trinity's Postgraduate course in Creative Thinking, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. It combines excellent guest lecturers and committed course leaders with in-depth peer to peer learning in an immersive and stimulating programme that has both academic and practical benefit
This course is fantastic - I can't recommend it highly enough. I learnt so much on the course from design thinking, handling intellectual property issues to setting up your own business. The course is intense but always presented in a positive fashion. All the lecturers from within the college or outside were very interesting and always approachable. The trinity team were excellent, very positive and always so helpful. Finally my classmates, I was so lucky we just clicked from day one and struck up a bond that I'm sure will last a lifetime! This course will push you outside your comfort zone and if you are halfway interested, just go for it!
