The Entrepreneurs Academy, formerly QED Training and the Ignite Academy, is delighted to announce that it has secured a new contract with Springboard+ to run two free programmes on Practical Entrepreneurship to support budding entrepreneurs who want to start their own business.


The Entrepreneurs Academy, founded by renowned entrepreneur and business woman Joanne Hession 18 years ago, has supported thousands of entrepreneurs in Ireland to set up and grow their businesses.


As part of this new partnership with Springboard+, The Entrepreneurs Academy is offering 100 free places in Dublin on two of its 12 week courses, the first of which commences in September 2016 and the other in January 2017. Both courses will be fully funded through the Springboard+ Initiative, supported by the HEA, and therefore are free of charge and eligible to those who are unemployed.


Speaking about the new contract Founder and MD of The Entrepreneurs Academy, Joanne Hession stated: “The Entrepreneurs Academy are delighted to be delivering new programmes under the Springboard+ initiative. Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and our vision is to have meaningful impact on the quantity and quality of entrepreneurship in Ireland. We do this through the delivery of practical and engaging programmes, with trainers who have their own extensive experiences of starting and running businesses. Our team will work with participants to firstly give them the confidence to get started and then give them the knowledge through modules and mentoring to help build sustainable businesses. Our Springboard+ programmes will help us reach even more people who need the hands-on encouragement and expert guidance we are renowned for.”


The Entrepreneurs Academy programmes are run for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs, with a strong focus on mentoring. The programmes will be practical and will focus on giving participants the skills, knowledge, networks and confidence they need to create and drive a lucrative business.
