The Nexus Innovation Centre, located at the heart of the University of Limerick's magnificent campus is a purpose built environment that combines: individual offices, shared desk space, collaborative work spaces, a startup studio, small intimate meeting rooms, an impressive boardroom, high specification bio-labs and a reconfigurable lobby/exhibition space. Nexus, however, is about so much more than space, it's about community!
Our members or 'Nexi' are drawn from all walks of life but have one thing in common, the vision and drive to start a new business. Nexus understands the paradoxical nature of a start-up business. On one-hand they are exciting, playful and creative fledgling organisations that require leaders with audacity and passion, and, on the other, they are hard work, process-oriented businesses that require leaders with perseverance and discipline.
At Nexus, we believe that smart agile startups can be fostered through a highly connected and supportive community. We foster a ‘smart startup’ approach to everything we do: we learn by doing, encourage early customer engagement and co-creation, we focus on revenue generation, we constantly challenge our members to be better, smarter and leaner. The Nexus Philosophy is firmly rooted in the notions of the lean startup and design thinking.
