One of the benefits of participation for OmniSpirant Limited was the support of participants in shaping business plan and funding strategy
Gerry McCauley of OmniSpirant Limited who is from Clonmel, Co Tipperary was among those who received support for the New Frontiers Programme at the ArcLabs innovation hub in Waterford.
The former New Frontiers participant offers advice to entrepreneurs considering the New Frontiers Programme:
“New Frontiers is an excellent programme applicable to any business sector, Eugene and all programme contributors in WIT helped to shape the business plan and funding strategy for OmniSpirant Limited. New Frontiers also connected us further into the Enterprise Ireland and Horizon Europe support networks”.
Funding for next five years
In 2021 WIT and Institute of Technology Carlow jointly secured €3m from Enterprise Ireland to operate the New Frontiers entrepreneur development programme in the south east over five years.
New Frontiers Programme Manager at WIT, Eugene Crehan explains who the programme is for: “The New Frontiers programme is designed to help ambitious individuals bring their business idea from concept to successful start-up. Over the next five years we hope to support another 250 entrepreneurs on Phase 1 of our programme with about 20% making it through to the second phase and access to EI funding every year.”
