NISP CONNECT – Nomination Time – Generation Innovation

Nerve Belfast Creative Leanring Centre

It is time to nominate students to join us for the next Generation Innovation Night of Ambition, which is happening on Tuesday February 24 2015 (17:00 – 20:30) in Belfast.

Generation Innovation (@GenInnovators) is run by NISP CONNECT, a non-profit organisation, supported by the Northern Ireland Science Park. We believe every young person in Northern Ireland, with talent and ambition, can make it big. Over the next 20 years our science and tech sector will need 100, 000 new people, with diverse talents. We are seeking those 16 – 17 year olds most likely to succeed in this new ‘knowledge economy’, regardless of their background or examination grades – be they engineers, scientists, gamers, App developers, programmers, designers or budding entrepreneurs.

Why nominate students for Generation Innovation’s Night of Ambition?

  • Attendees will hear from inspiring speakers like Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter
  • Attendees will meet some of the most exciting entrepreneurs in Northern Ireland
  • Alumni join an influential ‘Network of Ambition’ with links across Northern Ireland & beyond
  • Alumni get opportunities to run events eg. Create:2014 (@Create2014Co)
  • Schools become part of the Generation Innovation movement

The Generation Innovation Night of Ambition is held to welcome new members, plus an accompanying parent/guardian. We now invite schools/colleges to nominate 1 – 2 young people to take part. Please RSVP to claire.burgoyne@nispconnect.org by Friday December 19 2014, with the names of nominees, their favourite subjects and a few lines outlining the reasons for the nominations.
