The Irish Graduates Network is a platform on which Irish graduate business professionals and entrepreneurs meet to form business relationships and to recognise, create or act upon business opportunities, share information and seek potential partners for ventures.
It was launched in November 2019 by a group of Irish graduates and final year business students from Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and Dublin City University.
To build a global network of Irish business graduates and final year university students for the purposes of identifying and exploiting new business opportunities.
Company values matter. Every successful company has a set of company values which are the essence of the company’s identity and summarises the purpose of its existence. We would summarise our values as follows:
Integrity: We are honest, open, ethical, and fair. People trust us to adhere to our word.
Respect: We treat others in the same way as we would expect to be treated.
Accountability: We take responsibility for our actions.
Collaboration: We leverage collective genius and believe in the benefits of working together.
Entrepreneurial Spirit: We are willing to try out new things.
A Focus on Success: We set targets and do whatever it takes to achieve these.
Stewardship: We take care of the organisation and plan to leave it in a better way than we found it.
