The Rubicon Centre at CIT launches STEM Female Entrepreneurship Programme

The Rubicon Centre at Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) has launched a new female entrepreneurship programme for women in the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) sectors. CIT, Rubicon Centre and Enterprise Ireland are the partners on the programme.

The Exxcel programme will enable female entrepreneurs to develop their idea and progress its potential as a start-up business. This flexible, part-time programme will run over six months and uses a unique approach that enables potential entrepreneurs to focus on driving their idea from concept to reality. The approach uses experts who will share their expertise and experience with participants, primarily on a one-to-one basis.

The programme will initially carry out a needs analysis on participants and will offer part-time, modular and mentoring learning experiences, as well as the opportunity to meet and share the experiences of other entrepreneurs.
