Young Entrepreneurs Open Day, Dublin – February 2017

The IEEE Young Entrepreneurs Open Day 2017 Dublin was the first event of the IEEE UK&Ireland Young Professionals Group in Ireland, and focused in supporting and preparing the students and Young Professionals for facing a challenging world with less work opportunities and a urgent need of continuous professional development.

This event was held on 25 February 2017 in University College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland and had a good turnout with about 70 attendees, speakers and volunteers. The event was a good opportunity to network, share experiences and to know more about all the tools available and agencies in Ireland that can support the Young Entrepreneurs to start or grow their business.
