Celebrating new start-ups by female entrepreneurs at the Rubicon Centre
The Rubicon Centre at Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) congratulated 9 female entrepreneurs on successfully completing the Exxcel Programme at a recent showcase event in Vertigo, County Hall, Cork.
The 6 month, part-time Exxcel Programme is the only programme in Ireland supported by Enterprise Ireland that is dedicated to supporting STEM female entrepreneurs. The programme is designed to work around the participants daily demands as they balance very busy personal and professional lives.
Programme Manager, Lucy O’Donoghue said, “We are celebrating the progress and achievements of the female participants in their new business ventures. For the past 6 months they have attended training modules and worked closely with the Rubicon Centre and our team of trainers and mentors, guiding them through the complex process of validating their business ideas, completing investor ready business plans and learning how to professionally pitch their ideas to potential backers. They are a highly skilled, resilient, hard-working, confident and motivated group of entrepreneurs who took a leap of faith in themselves and pursed their dream of starting a new business. We wish them every success as they move forward".
