TechInnovate is an entrepreneurship development programme supported by Galway University Foundation. The programme comprises six entrepreneurial Fellows working in two teams focusing in bringing technological innovations in the agricultural and defense sectors to the market. To date TechInnovate has delivered disciplined entrepreneurship skills to over 135 people.
The Fellows, all industry professionals form interdisciplinary teams, each made up an engineer, a businessperson and a designer. The entrepreneurs undergo an initial bootcamp in the Disciplined Entrepreneurship process, carry out a needs analysis with end users, filter down to the most pressing need, and then developed a commercial proposal for a technology-base solution to that need.
