The inaugural issue of the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN) Magazine distributed by the Financial Times worldwide  highlighted Ireland and UCC as a hub for innovation, new ideas, start-ups and creativity.

The GEN initiative is a new voice for promoting entrepreneurial growth and support start-ups around the world and  featured a foreword by U.S. President Barack Obama.  With a global explosion of interest in helping nascent entrepreneurs with great ideas, there is an urgent need to develop more supportive environments that empower the next generation of start-ups, including their ability to scale globally. This magazine underscores the value of collaborative entrepreneurial ecosystems as an epicentre for creating jobs, unearthing innovations for society and strengthening economic stability, and it highlights Ireland’s strengths in these areas.

As one of the main participants featuring in the GEN Magazine, UCC are delighted to be part of this important initiative and help promote Ireland as a global hub for entrepreneurship, innovation and business with particular focus on research, education, entrepreneurs, industry, Government and all sectors collaborating to achieve advancing an entrepreneurship eco-system in Ireland on the global stage.

The magazine also features an overview of the financial technology (FinTech) industry, one of the fastest growing sectors the Irish economy, and includes a report on UCC’s Governance, Risk & Compliance Technology Centre (GRCTC).
