NDRC Programmes We Offer
Founder Weekend: this programme is a 48-hour opportunity for early-stage founders to learn new approaches, pitch their idea, and receive mentorship from experienced professionals. Fireside chats and panel discussions also form part of this programme, and it is open to those who have an idea but want to develop it beyond ideation.
Pre-Accelerator: a six-week programme for founders who are looking to become revenue- or Accelerator- ready. Fireside chats, mentorship, and in-depth reflections on how to make progress in the start-up world are all key parts of the programme. Many of the alumni who come through this programme go on to apply for the Accelerator.
Office Hours: every Friday, Office Hours are led by Rosemary (and sometimes a special guest mentor). These 25-minute conversations allow early-stage founders the chance to get one-to-one feedback on their ideas, setting them up to really give their start-up ideation shape and structure.
Irish Tech Hub Network
The PorterShed is a proud member of this interconnected community of tech hubs around the island of Ireland whose collective goal is to catalyse innovation in their regions.
We are a regional delivery partner for the NDRC, the national startup accelerator programme for globally ambitious tech entrepreneurs in Ireland.
The PorterShed also offers a range of other programmes from time to time. Rosemary has helped build a number of programmes that offer support and frameworks for all manner of entrepreneurship areas.
One such example would be the student entrepreneurship programme that she compiled to help students interested in innovation and building on novel innovations receive the guidance needed to bring their ideas to the next level. Another would be the in-house programme she developed to help transition year students maximise their work experience at the PorterShed.
