UCC students win Enterprise Ireland Award

Zooplar, a student team from University College Cork has been awarded the ‘Emerging and Dynamic Company of the Year’ at the 2012 Enterprise Ireland Think Outside the Box Awards.

Brian Corish and Gillian Barrett make up Zooplar and both are students on the MSc (Innovation, Commercialisation and Entrepreneurship) programme. Zooplar is building a world-class brand engagement Augmented Reality platform which runs on Facebook.

The Emerging and Dynamic Company of the Year Award of €5,000 was co-sponsored by Grant Thornton and Enterprise Ireland. Grant Thornton will also provide business plan development advice to the finalists. Zooplar also won an all expenses paid trip to Poland from Intel, to participate in the Intel Challenge Europe Technology Entrepreneurship Competition.

If you see yourself as a future award-winning student and entrepreneur why not think about our Masters in Innovation and Business Development at UCC?
