Blackstone Launchpad

In summer 2019 Blackstone LaunchPad had the privilege of hosting UCC’s first ever full-time student accelerator programme, Student Inc. 

Being able to offer a summer accelerator programme has helped bridge a gap in the student entrepreneurship arena in UCC, as students can now participate in a dedicated support programme to develop their business ideas without the need to source alternative employment during the summer months.

International EFYE 2019.
( European First-Year Experience )

Before the showcase, I was invited to the EFYE conference. I was very fortunate to have a wealth of knowledge to teach about Blockchain technology and its impact on education in the coming years. 

The EFYE conference has been a success for over 10 years due to, in part, its ability to adapt and retain interest for new and returning delegates alike.

The EYFE 2019 programme committee welcomed a wide variety of submissions within the conference theme from many different perspectives including; Student Support, Teaching & Learning, Education Research and Policy.

EFYE2019 took place in CIT on June 17,18 and 19 June 2019.

Founder & CEO

Our company is....

a collective of amazing people striving to build delightful products.

The Internet is ubiquitous in our daily lives today.

We are still in the early days for Blockchain. Most people are still going to take time to learn and discover just how important this technology is going to be for us. This is a process is similar to the heydays of the internet. It is going to take a little bit of time for the mainstream to figure this out. Everything is interconnected and information flows quicker through technology, social media and the Internet. 

TLDR; Blockchain, Virtual Reality and Artificial intelligence will mature much quicker than the internet
