What is WE Support?
‘WE Support’ is a new TU Dublin pan-University initiative to address these historical deficits and to increase representation of women in entrepreneurship across all TU Dublin disciplines.
The aims of the WE Support programme are to:
- Increase female student participation in entrepreneurship
- Grow the number of TU Dublin women alumni in senior leadership positions in external organisations
- Increase the number of women-led/co-founder TU Dublin spin-outs
How does WE Support help empower women?
We Support offers end-to-end support throughout the programme and provides dedicated event information, relevant resources, potential funding and other supports to the participants.
