Events & Training

At Dublin BIC, we create platforms for entrepreneurs to learn, share and make contacts through a full calendar of seminars, networking events, training programmes and information sessions.

These platforms facilitate continuous skills and knowledge development as well as create valuable networking and business opportunities.


Enterprise Start 2

Enterprise Start 2 is a six week programme specifically developed to challenge and validate business ideas. It aims to help entrepreneurs clarify their business proposition with particular focus on value proposition, market opportunity, market analysis and sales potential through group workshops and one-to-one mentoring.

Enterprise Start 2 is designed for entrepreneurs or early stage start up companies that have a business idea and would like to develop the business proposition to a point where it can be considered by Enterprise Ireland’s High Potential Start-Up team.

The Dublin BIC Entrepreneurship Series

The Dublin BIC Entrepreneurship Series is a seminar style forum where high profile entrepreneurs share their entrepreneurial journeys or where a business issue or trend is identified and addressed through information provision, discussion and expert advice.

Past events include “ Facebook – platform to build successful businesses”, “YouTube – partner programme and monetizing content” and “Serious Games – potential and opportunities in serious games”


Consultation Services

Dublin BIC has a team of 14 business consultants who mentor individual entrepreneurs and developing enterprises. They bring many years experience of starting and growing businesses to the table where they play a crucial role of sounding board and, at times, devils advocate. They provide advice, feedback and contacts and are an invaluable support to aspiring entrepreneurs in those challenging early days.
