Limerick Institute of Technology Business Start-up Awards 2021 takes place on Tuesday 30th March 2021, 12.30 pm to 1.45 pm.

This year’s awards are a celebration of LIT’s start-up ecosystem with global potential! The awards ceremony will gather, support and celebrate the achievements of the businesses that have just completed the LIT New Frontiers Programme.

At the event, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from the founders and their teams who have just completed the LIT New Frontiers programme – the Enterprise Ireland National Entrepreneur Development Programme for early-stage high potential start-ups – as well as a chance to hear from the LIT New Frontiers team.

We are delighted to once again be one of the sponsors of this event. Best of luck to all involved. You can take a look at the New Frontiers class of 2020/2021 here. If you wish to attend the event bookings can be made here.


LIT run the National Entrepreneur Development Programme for Enterprise Ireland called New Frontiers at its Hartnett Enterprise Acceleration Centre supported by the LIT centres Questum and TCEC and in collaboration with UL Nexus. The programme’s primary purpose is to accelerate the development of sustainable new businesses that have strong employment and growth potential and contribute to job creation and economic activity in regional locations.

New Frontiers is designed for individuals who have an innovative business idea that has the potential to create a manufacturing or internationally traded services business with employment potential, can show evidence of a commercial market for their proposed product/service and are ambitious, growth-orientated and committed to engaging fully in all aspects of the programme. LIT are now accepting applications to New Frontiers Phase 1 which will take place in April. Details are available here.
