"Each and every one of the LaunchBox finalists today has blown me away - in terms of your passion, commitment, and the quality of what you have achieved. We live in a country where entrepreneurship should be the ambition of all students. That’s particularly why LaunchBox and Tangent is important to us as an organisation."

Leo Clancy

CEO of Enterprise Ireland speaking at LaunchBox Demo Day 2022

Thanks to Tangent, I know not just how to start with my business, but where to aim, what to expect, and how to pitch myself and my ideas. I gained so much practical knowledge, and launched my business before the course even finished, and we’ve gone from strength to strength.

The climate entrepreneurship programme gave me a great understanding of the opportunities for entrepreneurs and companies to be pioneers in this space; it really helped me understand the dynamics at play and what innovations are necessary for companies and society to transition to a more decarbonised economy.

This is exactly what I’ve been waiting to do for years”. It helped me clarify what was important to me and what encompassed a fulfilling career for me. And I am, as a result, in a new role that combines all my experience. It came together as a result of the process on the course.

'Highly recommend this course. It was inspirational and practical. Clear structure with real world practices on how to integrate Wellbeing in your organisation at every level.'

Niamh Conlon

Leadership Life & Career Coach

'It encourages you to understand why you or other teammates naturally move to a preferred problem-solving method, this in turn allows you to stop and consider your approach before jumping to a solution. Overall a great experience, the facilitator was energetic, enthusiastic and informative, who managed to keep a wide group from different backgrounds thoroughly engaged. A great plus is to hear and share thoughts with people from different companies and industries. Would highly recommend it.'

'Really helped me notice areas that could be improved on, and processes that could be implemented and overall changed the way I think for the better. It's amazing how quickly you benefit from following the process.'

The Creating a Culture for Strategic Innovation Programme showed me new skills and tools to use to progress innovative thinking and change in my team and in my organisation. The sessions on Bias and Problem-solving really got me thinking about how I view others and how changing or tailoring my approach can really have an effect on an outcome or situation. The sessions on storytelling were a game changer - I will use the storytelling decks again and again—fantastic programme and highly recommended.
