i Wish Entrepreneur Zone in association with Enterprise Ireland

The Entrepreneur Zone is where students and STEM entrepreneurs can engage directly! Female entrepreneurs operating in STEM present and discuss their work, why they set up their companies and what it means to them to be a girl STEM boss!  This area is another experience within the overall I Wish event programme that will further enable students to understand the STEM opportunities as well as entrepreneurship.  Most of the presenters represent small to medium sized businesses based in Ireland, and run by female leaders. This is an “up close and personal” with these incredible businesswomen.
