Phase 1 is an evening course delivered twice a week, from 6pm-9pm over a period of 5/6 weeks and offers you, the entrepreneur, an opportunity to assess the business potential of your idea. The programme is open to manufacturing and internationally traded services based ideas.

Deadline for applications is midnight Sunday 15th September 2019, with the programme due to commence in October 2019.

Please note that Phase 1 is a competitive application process, therefore the submission of an application in itself does not guarantee any candidate a place on the programme. In order to gain the most benefit from Phase 1 of the programme, applicants should be committed to allocating time to researching their idea during this phase. Attending our specifically designed Phase 1 may assist you to improve your chances of accessing our next Phase 2 of New Frontiers at DkIT/DCU Invent.
