The consultants and mentors available to you are top class. We learnt a huge amount from the New Frontiers programme. I would highly recommend it!
Mark Ganly, Contego Sports
Anyone with an innovative idea that needs great guidance, amazing resources and a not so gentle push in the right direction to help their business succeed should apply to New Frontiers - you'll be amazed at how far your business, and you, can come in a year.
Una McNeill, Roampa
Do it, but don't give up the day job until you have completed something like New Frontiers, as it gives you structure and a network of contacts. Naive belief can be helpful to get you going, but you soon discover your knowledge gaps.
Adrian Walsh, CheckVentory
There's a network of support here and it alleviates the sense of isolation when starting up a company. The mentoring and reviews are also important – getting someone else's perspective is great.
Niamh O’Dwyer, Organic Little One
I didn't expect it to be as transformational as it was. When you apply to courses like this, you sometimes tend to see the funding only and think that it'll give you a few months of runway, but there's much more to be gained than that.
Robert Cosgrave, LearnLode
We now understand why programmes such as this are often termed 'accelerators'. The amount we have learned, and the experience we have gained, in this short space of time is amazing.
Andrew Kingston, GroupBooked
The New Frontiers Programme has made me more confident as an entrepreneur. It helped me to face the opportunity and risk in a balanced way.
Xuemei Germaine, MicroGen Biotech
The programme helped us to define our value proposition and to build the team and business plan to raise €600K in seed funding.
Stephen Slattery, Zeto
Coming from engineering backgrounds, New Frontiers taught us exactly what we needed to know to make our business a success as entrepreneurs.
