ADAPT Centre Supporting Startups from Concept to Spinout
At the ADAPT Centre entrepreneurs and researchers collaborate and innovate in conjunction with industry partners to solve the problems that will lead to commercial opportunities for spinout startup companies.
At ADAPT we leverage our research excellence in Digital interaction technology to solve real-world industry problems that can lead to spinout startups. Typically our startup’s value proposition revolves around fusing technology with the physical world to replace or enhance human interactions in existing workflows. We also collaborate with other schools such as Psychology, Engineering, Business and Neuroscience to bring together the research excellence for success.
Adapt Centre collaborates and works closely with the world’s leading technology companies and brands. This enables us to keep our startup research teams highly focused and driven by real customer and industry need. All of our startups validate their business opportunities with industry before applying for funding. The EI commercial feasibility study grant enables quick validation of ideas. And Adapt also provides pre-accelerator training in customer discovery and validation to develop the business case and secure trial partners.
ADAPT supports startup teams in developing compelling funding applications underpinned by a strong research road map, a validated business case and engaged trial partners. With this, ADAPT startup teams are well placed to secure EI University Commercialisation funding up to €350k, which provides the funding to develop and bring the opportunity to market in conjunction with industry trial partners. This approach greatly accelerates the opportunity from concept to reality.
ADAPT Centre’s commercialisation team, in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland and the university technology transfer office, provide additional support to startup teams on their entire journey from concept to spinout startup company.
