Enabling startups and scaleups to succeed, corporates to innovate, and the Irish entrepreneurial ecosystem to thrive.
Our centres offer affordable space to our entrepreneurs, so your ideas can flourish, and relationships evolve supporting a culture of creativity, innovation, and professionalism.
Our high quality, professional workspaces enable start-ups to thrive with 24/7 secure access to a full range of office and research facilities with resources in a vibrant entrepreneurial community.
Or if you’ve already outgrown your office space, we can help with graduation add on spaces. Equally if office space is not a requirement for your start-up, virtual membership is also available enabling you to tap into all the other resources available from TUS's Innovation & Enterprise Community.

The programme will run across MTU, UCC, UL, TUS and ATU and will be supported by the incubation centres on each of the university campuses.
In terms of helping businesses that have started and grown from there but also in second siting which is becoming more and more important where businesses may be based in Limerick or other places are siting some of their workers in Thurles because it allows people to work closer to home.
The Careers & Employability Service at TUS works directly with companies and organisations that wish to recruit TUS graduates or to arrange valuable work placements. Both outward facing teams are a key part of TUS’s commitment to ensuring our academic programmes are aligned with sectoral needs and support the socio-economic development of the region.
I have a passion for innovation, design & technology and helping entrepreneurs through the most important stages of their startup journey or supporting business leaders and their teams through their innovation and business improvement journeys.
