Martin Hogan

Martin HoganHi I’m Martin Hogan and I’d like to welcome you to the Innovation Cubed startup competition. I’m responsible for managing the digital media business incubation facility, Media Cube, at IADT and for driving much of the commercial interaction and innovation between the commercial sector and the Institute.

Media Cube is one of only two campus based incubation facilities in the country that is fully occupied and has a waiting list of suitable start-up businesses. Since joining IADT in 2006 commercial engagements between IADT and companies from small organisations to multinational companies have greatly increased.

Media Cube runs Innovation Cubed and a major portion of the prize is free office space here at “The Cube” for a year. So if you win you’ll probably have more than a few dealings with me.

So then, a bit of background on me would seem appropriate. I have a BSc, an MBA and a postgraduate diploma in enterprise development. I’m no stranger to the startup world and previous positions included Managing Director of start-up company, Statesoft, Sales Manager with Bea Systems and Business Development Manager with Media Satellite. So between this experience and my time helping developing startups in the Media Cube I have a good idea of the trials and tribulations of the startup world. Whether it’s by way of the competition or even just to check out the cube as a potential base for your startup, please get in touch.

All the best,

    "Our Innovation Cubed prize in 2009 was extremely helpful in progressing our business's development. Apart from all the benefits of now being located in the centre, the high profile judging panel offered excellent suggestions and support. We wish you the very best in holding the competition in 2010 and we are sure that those companies who receive an award will be very pleased with the facilities at the Media"
