Final Year business students from Ulster University this week took part in an ideation masterclass in the Playhouse where they learned more about the steps needed to turn their business ideas into a sustainable reality.

Developing Innovative Ideas was a one-day course that explored entrepreneurship and design thinking and aimed to give the young people the practical advice and confidence to get their business ideas off the ground.  

The Masterclass was delivered by Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Business Support Team in partnership with Ulster University Business School and facilitated by the Catalyst Student Invent team.

It forms part of the Go Succeed programme to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation amongst students completing the Entrepreneurship and Innovation module at the University.

Business Officer at Council Maria McKeever said the course offered students the opportunity to connect and learn from industry leaders.

“The students were engaged in a practical workshop led by an innovation expert,” she said. “They gained confidence by exploring real problems, co-creating solutions and considering the needs of an inclusive society when developing an idea into a sustainable and profitable enterprise.”
