Building great companies from great technologies

Tyndall Founder Programme

Tyndall National Institute is one of Europe’s leading research centres in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) research and development and the largest facility of its type in Ireland.

The institute has a wide range of technologies on the brink of commercialisation that need Founders to lead them to the marketplace.

Tyndall are looking for successful business people to partner with us to transform our portfolio of applied research projects and capabilities into profitable commercial ventures.

Tyndall is seeking to fast track the creation of new companies by giving Founders access to its current portfolio of technologies, projects and capabilities with spin-out potential. As a founder, it will be your job to generate and then lead those spin-out companies to the marketplace.

Tyndall would like to hear from you if you have:

  • a strong commercial track record
  • excellent business and start-up credentials
  • capacity to invest
  • vision and intent to transform new technologies into sustainable and investable businesses

If you are interested in becoming a “Founder@Tyndall” please email 

The initiative is run in partnership with Enterprise Ireland’s Business Partner Programme.  This programme supports Higher Education Institutes to match their portfolio of emerging spin-out opportunities with commercially experienced founders.
