Technological University DublinSelf-Employment for People with Disabilities Course at TU Dublin

A new course has been developed at Technological University Dublin, commencing September 2021, sponsored by Pobal and supported by the Open Doors Initiative.

The course will be hosted and delivered by TU Dublin through its Continuing Professional Development programme. It is open to anyone who self-identifies as having a disability and who wishes to start their own business. However, the course is not suitable for a person who has already started their own business or simply wants to learn about entrepreneurship.

The course requires participants to have a business idea that they wish to evaluate as a sustainable enterprise. During the course, participants will cover the following topics:

  • Idea evaluation
  • Customer segmentation
  • Customer relationships and channels
  • Clarifying the Value Proposition
  • Balancing business and personal well-being
  • Key business activities
  • Key resources and partners
  • Developing financial projections
  • Test marketing your idea
  • Understanding legal matters
  • Presenting your business plan
