Development of Entrepreneurial Culture at ITB
The LINC works with the Schools in ITB to support the development of an entrepreneurial culture among the undergraduate and post-graduate community. Initiatives include :
Accelerating Campus Entrepreneurship Project
This project funded through the HEA Strategic Innovation Fund is a partnership between ITB, Dundalk Institute of Technology, Cork Institute of Technology, Sligo Institute of Technology and NUI Galway.

The intern works with the student community to promote entrepreneurship. She organises competitions and seminars and hosts events with successful business owners as guest speakers, thus opening up the world of enterprise throughout the student body.

Global Business Incubation Day
The LINC works with other enterprise centres in the Fingal region to celebrate the international day of incubation. In December 2008 the LINC hosted the day with a breakfast seminar which was launched by Brody Sweeney, followed by a Q&A session with a panel including Enterprise Ireland, Brody Sweeney and Ken Germaine (CEO, BASE Enterprise Centre, Mulhunddart). This was then followed by an Open Day in all the Enterprise Centres in the Fingal County.
Student Enterprise Competitions
ITB students have taken part in many enterprise competitions over the years including Enterprise Ireland Student Enterprise Awards and the Newstalk Student Enterprise Competition. These competitions are supported through the LINC and the School of Business.
ITB carries out consultancy work for Industry on initiatives such as the Enterprise Ireland Innovation Vouchers.
