Run as a collaborative partnership with SFI Research Centres – the Irish Photonic Integration Research Centre, The Telecommunications Software & Systems Group Research Centre and the Connect Research Centre -the aim of the programme was to help researchers actively prepare for commercialisation funding which will support them on the path to pre-seed investment.

Over a sixteen-week period, the NDRC team worked with the researchers to identify market challenges, helping them understand the value of the customer discovery and validation process and to explore the application of business model design to their research. The programme also offered the opportunity for the researchers to meet entrepreneurs and expand their networks in the digital startup sector.
