Business Support

Just as important as our state-of-the-art facilities, the Media Cube provides a supportive environment to help entrepreneurs through the highs and lows of the start-up journey.

IADT’s Innovation, Commercialisation & Development Manager is available to provide advice and support, and is a gateway to key personnel within Enterprise Ireland and Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Enterprise Board.

Frequent seminars and networking events are held within the Media Cube, providing companies with opportunities to get up to speed on key topics while networking with Media Cube companies and alumni. We also provide Cube companies with up-to-date information on training/development, funding and networking opportunities. Clearly, mixing on a day-to-day basis with other start-up entrepreneurs presents a great learning opportunity for all of our tenants, who share their experiences and diverse skill-sets.

A key benefit of locating within the Media Cube is the opportunity to collaborate with researchers and students at IADT. Cube companies frequently work with IADT researchers on projects supported through Enterprise Ireland Innovation Vouchers. Recent examples have included projects focused on UI design and the gamification of e-learning applications.
