Where GREAT BUSINESS IDEAS take off
The iHub at GMIT Galway & Castlebar incubators provide high potential entrepreneurs and innovative start-ups with the business skills, networks, space and supports necessary to navigate the business start-up process from concept to successful commercialisation.
Since 2005, the Innovation Hubs (iHubs) at GMIT Galway and Mayo have assisted entrepreneurs to develop and bring their business ideas to the marketplace. Designed to play a strategic role in the development of the West region, the iHubs help drive the enterprise model of market-led and knowledge-based industry development.
A critical goal of the iHubs is the number of successful Start-Up companies that emerge from the Incubation pipeline. These new companies will have survived the early stages of growth and become independent standalone entities which have successfully developed new products or services for global markets.
We provide you, the entrepreneur, with a supportive environment as you progress your idea from concept to commercial success.
