NovaUCD with the support of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Enterprise Board has now run 15 extremely popular "Entrepreneurs Live!" seminar series consisting of a total of over 80 seminars.
The seminar series aims to promote a spirit of entrepreneurship among the academic, research and student population at UCD.
The seminars involved well known entrepreneurs who talk about their experiences of setting up and running their own business, emphasising the highs and lows on their entrepreneurial journey and highlighting the lessons they learnt along the way.

After each seminar, attendees have the opportunity to participate in a lively question and answer session with the guest entrepreneur.
Over the last number of years the seminars have continued to attract a large audience and to stimulate a lively and enthusiastic debate.There is clearly a growing culture of entrepreneurship on UCD's campus which augurs will for UCD's ability to generate new knowledge-intensive and innovative enterprises which are critical for the sustained development of Ireland's knowledge-based economy.
The 16th NovaUCD 'Entrepreneurs Live'! Seminar Series will commence in Autumn 2011.
