Teagasc's entrepreneurship programmes such as the Start Fund and Catalysing Connections enable the delivery of novel, disruptive technologies and services to the market directly supporting the future of the Irish Agri-Food sector.
Entrepreneurship has a role to play in achieving Teagasc Together strategy for innovation and the delivery of Strategic Goals 2, 3 and 4. High potential, research-based technologies including novel ingredients, valorisation of waste streams, digitalisation of farm management and emerging solutions for emission reduction can be swiftly realised as products through commercial spin-outs.
Our role in Teagasc TTO, is to support Teagasc researchers through the journey from concept to spin-out via funding supports, mentorship, market research, planning, network building and ultimately establishing a new venture.
