This Enterprise Week features 4-days of activities (March 23rd - March 26th) taking place in various locations throughout the county of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. The week has been designed to help aspiring entrepreneurs to start new businesses and the owners of existing businesses to expand.

The message from the organisers of the Enterprise Week, which includes NovaUCD, is that small businesses can 'still fly higher, even during an economic storm.'

The aim of the NovaUCD Open Day is to give budding high-tech entrepreneurs an opportunity to drop in and visit the NovaUCD facility, to discover the unique services, supports and facilities available and to meet members of NovaUCD's successful community of entrepreneurs.

The guest speaker at the NovaUCD Open Day will be Sean Gallagher, co-founder and CEO, Smarthomes and a 'Dragon' on RTE's 'Dragons' Den' TV programme who will deliver a lunchtime NovaUCD ‘Entrepreneurs Live!’ seminar (www.ucd.ie/nova/events/novaucdopenday/seangallagherentrepreneurslive/#d.en.28928
