Simon Coveney T.D., Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government announced the four successful not-for-profit projects selected to take part in the first ever THINKTECH Accelerator. This programme will enable the successful projects to grow their ideas for a better Ireland, by providing financial support plus participation in the world class THINKTECH programme.
iScoil will receive an award of €210,000 (€160,000 cash + €50,000 non-financial support) and a place on a five month Accelerator programme.
We are delighted to be one of the winners of THINKTECH. Our students are at the centre of everything we do and this is an amazing opportunity to grow iScoil into a national solution that widens access to learning, achievement and progression. As Deirdre Mortell CEO Social Innovation says “This is about making Ireland better” and we’re looking forward to working with THINKTECH to make the most of the opportunity and contribute our best to making change happen.
