Empower Programme 2023

EMPOWER is a HEA (Higher Education Authority) funded programme designed to support potential young innovator and entrepreneur. EMPOWER will focus on helping young people to build a powerful toolkit that, through support, will enable them to build creative, innovative and entrepreneurial skills for life. 

EMPOWER has been designed by The Technological University of the Shannon: Midlands Midwest (TUS) & Mary Immaculate College together with advisors in business including young entrepreneurs, academia, national and global youth organisations, teachers, investors, incubation and acceleration teams and informed by some of the best models globally. This is our 7th year running this programme but we have been running entrepreneurship programmes for more than 15 years!

Importantly, the programme is designed to be fun and creatively challenging and will prepare young students for real world success, building their innovative, creative, design and entrepreneurial skills and mindset through activity based learning! Always a rewarding week for the students and all involved.

It will run Tuesday to Friday from 9:30am to 3:30pm each day. Max 25 students. You must be a current secondary school student (senior cycle TY, 5th, 6th). 6th years just finishing this year can also apply.

We chose Questum as the administrative base for our company for many reasons but, mainly as it is conveniently located on the outer ring road with cities such as Cork, Dublin, Limerick and Waterford within easy reach. As a Questum resident we avail of free carparking, access to a spacious board room, various meeting rooms and a bright airy communal dining space. The very nature of the acceleration centre means that you never know who you might meet in the corridor, making Questum is the ideal place for networking and sharing ideas!

One Box Vision has operated from the Questum since it’s opening. The facilities are second to none, making it a great place to work. The variety of high technology companies that exportglobally makes it a great place to network, interacting with other residents to gain useful insights advice and sometimes services. One Box Vision thrived in the Questum and sold to Maxcess International in May 2021
