New Frontiers Phase 1 - Test Your Innovative Business Idea
New Frontiers is a three-phase programme, designed to provide an integrated and comprehensive set of business development supports to participants throughout the programme.
Phase 1 will help you to validate the market potential of your business idea. The programme is held part-time over a 5 week period during April/May.
During the 10 sessions you will stress test your business idea, carry out market research, look at the financials and begin pitching your idea. The Phase 1 workshops will allow you to tease out the feasibility of your business idea, evaluate if your idea can be turned into a viable business proposition and to learn what entrepreneurship entails. Upon completion of the course, you will be clearer about the viability of your business idea and will be armed with enough information to decide whether or not you are ready for the next step.
It is recommended that you begin your New Frontiers journey with Phase 1 using the skills you acquire during the programme to progress with your idea turning it into a business proposition.
Key benefits to participate in New Frontiers Phase 1 are:
- Part-time programme held over two evenings per week for approximately 5 weeks

- Peer to peer networking and learning
- De-risk your business model
- You can continue in your current job
