The DkIT ‘Start For Future European’ entrepreneurship project has won the Triple E Award for “Triple Helix Collaboration of the Year.”
tart for Future is an intensive pre-incubation program where entrepreneurial individuals and teams are provided with an opportunity to work on their ideas and develop prototypes in the following sectors such as Health, Manufacturing, Food, Urban Mobility and Circular Economy.
Leading the initiative for DkIT, Professor Colette Henry from the School of Business and Humanities, commented: “We are excited that this coming September we will be offering all students at DkIT the opportunity to participate in the Start for Future (SFF) program. Our team will guide students through the start-up and team development process, provide them with entrepreneurship training, match them with an experienced start-up consultant and offer an opportunity for student teams to join one of the incubators from our 25 partner international consortium. This is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurial-minded students to fast track their ideas into the international market.”
Professor Henry added: “This award is testament to the work, determination and passion within the Start for Future program and wider consortium. At DkIT, the award recognizes the excellent entrepreneurial co-operation between our internal student, academic and incubator communities who come together to make entrepreneurship a reality.”
