For Entrepreneurs
The primary mission of the Irish Entrepreneurs Network is to support existing or aspiring entrepreneurs within the Notre Dame community by providing advice, mentoring, and networking assistance for business plans that demonstrate strong potential. Notre Dame students, faculty, alumni and other members of the Notre Dame family can access the  Irish Entrepreneurs Network members through the following Gigot Center programs:
  McCloskey Business Plan Competition

This annual program gives Notre Dame student and alumni entrepreneurs the opportunity to develop new venture plans with mentoring support from an extensive panel of competition judges and mentors, drawn from the Irish Entrepreneurs Network and other members of the Notre Dame family and regional business community.

More information about the McCloskey Business Plan Competition and other opportunities can be found at the Gigot Center’s web site http://gigot.nd.edu.
  Irish Entrepreneurs Network Posting Process

Persons interested in submitting business plans for the Irish Entrepreneurs Network to review may complete the necessary information online, obtain a login and password, and upload their plans to the Irish Entrepreneurs Network website.  This plan posting portal permits Notre Dame students, alumni, faculty, and staff to communicate information about their new ventures to Irish Entrepreneurs Network members, and to request information, advising, mentoring, networking, or other assistance.  The posting portal is not intended primarily for solicitation of investment.

  Irish Entrepreneurs Network-in-Residence Program

Periodically, members of the Irish Entrepreneurs Network are on campus and able to meet with students and faculty.  On those occasions, the Gigot Center will make the Irish Entrepreneurs Network availability known on the Center website, through e-mails and other media.  Interested persons may sign up to meet with the members of the Irish Entrepreneurs Network by coming by the Gigot Center office (234 Mendoza College of Business) or sending an email request to entrep@nd.edu.  Appointments with Irish Entrepreneurs Network members are always on a first-come, first-served basis.
