Ireland’s only university honouring Women Entrepreneurship Week!
At DCU we like to challenge the popular assumptions of entrepreneurship as being an individual-based form of organising with purely economic finalities. Rather we support the everydayness of entrepreneurship whereby it is a type of action deeply embedded within the fabric of society as opposed to traits possessed by a few heroic (male) individuals!
By taking a more inclusive standpoint – which we refer to as ‘entrepreneuring’ at DCU – we broaden what is traditionally viewed as entrepreneurship (solely starting a business), which allows us to appreciate other exciting forms of entrepreneurial activities such as social entrepreneurship, civic entrepreneurship, gig entrepreneurship and academic entrepreneurship. This inclusive approach also broadens who can do entrepreneurship, as we believe entrepreneurship is open to all, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or any other social and cultural trappings.
Inspiring a new generation of women
During 13th and 20th October 2018, DCU are delighted to be the only Irish University participating in the Women Entrepreneurship Week, a unique global event aimed at inspiring more women to found businesses.
Women bring something unique and special to the entrepreneurial table, so I am delighted that as a result of this initiative, we have the opportunity to celebrate their uniqueness and to also provide the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders (both male and female) with access to credible role models.
