The Rubicon Centre is located on the Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) Campus, Close to Cork City (Population 500,000+) and is part of a growing business community which is home to both Fortune 500 Companies and an ever expanding group of Start-ups and Indigenous Companies across all emerging sectors.
The Rubicon focus is to develop Ireland’s next generation of start-ups, who have the potential to develop and employ more than one person. As an innovation Centre for entrepreneurs, the Rubicon Centre is here to help, encourage & give support to people who present a unique idea or highlight a market niche.
The Rubicon aims to stimulate an environment of creativity and innovation with a continual focus of nurturing the growth of knowledge based business and commercial research in Ireland which they believe they can target.
The Rubicon is part of the CIT entrepreneurship ecosystem. With over 12,000 Students, the ecosystem was established in 1998; catering for both those who are located on and off Campus. The campus attracts both Irish and international students.
Since its launch in 2006, the Rubicon has grown rapidly, and today is home to over 50 Companies.
Rubicon Entrepreneurs not only get to access the Centre, but also join an Alumni of over 400 Companies who have all used the Rubicon as a platform for growth. These Entrepreneurs provide peer to peer support and a helping hand to those beginning their journey. Here are some of the Alumni giving their advice on taking the first steps.
