VentureLaunch - Workshops and Deliverables

The VentureLaunch programme will consist of 10 workshops which will run from 10am to 1pm each Wednesday beginning on 11 September with the final workshop taking place on 13 November.

Each programme session will consist of a mix of taught content and interactive workshops as well as regular pitching sessions to the VentureLaunch Programme Board. The content will be delivered by external experts as well as involve talks from leaders of UCD spin-out successes.

In addition to this there will be approximately 20 hours of scheduled meetings over the 3 months with the Project Team (including the relevant UCD Technology Transfer Case Manager and commercial advisor) as well as independent working requirement for completion of the programme.

At the final workshop participants will present their business plan to an assessment panel consisting of the VentureLaunch Programme Board as well some additional members of our entrepreneurial and investment community.

Based on evaluation of the pitch presentation and the submitted business plan the panel will chose a winner of the programme which will be announced at an awards event which is scheduled to take place on 20 November 2013.
