Working with the EIBF has been an extremely valued partnership over the past 3 years, and a key part of the ongoing growth and success of the Ingenuity event. Ingenuity is an annual public innovation and entrepreneurship event which aims to create a forum for idea exploration and impact enterprise development currently.
Over the past 4 years we have attracted over 2000 participants and the EIBF prize has enabled us to reach out to entrepreneurial engineering and computer science students and young academics. We now have an impressive roll call of tech and product-based businesses that have taken advantage of the prize and network opportunities. Another notable outcome has been many more female entrepreneurs with an engineering focus being attracted to Ingenuity and ultimately using the EIBF prize as a spring board to success.
