Mentoring and Investment Opportunities

NovaUCD Mentor Panel

Many client companies at NovaUCD are actively seeking mentoring from experienced business leaders and entrepreneurs which can be pivotal to the success of a knowledge-intensive start-up company. We are always looking to add to our network across a wide range of business areas from operations, sales and marketing, mergers and acquisitions, investment, and finance.

The NovaUCD Mentor Panel is aimed at getting experienced business leaders to preview and engage with new inventions and business propositions. The purpose of the panel is to enhance the commercial propositions, to mentor the teams, to invest in them or even take the lead as CEO to bring them to market. With over 100 leading-edge inventions coming from research and innovation across the UCD campus each year, we have an extensive pipeline offering to preview.
