Enterprise Week: Software Start-ups 101

As part of St Andrews Enterprise Week, join ideaQuad team members Scott (Founder, Full Stack Developer) and Sam (Communities) for a behind-the-scenes look at ideaQuad's journey.

ideaQuad is a new online research software platform that was developed by a team comprised of recent alumni, current students, and staff at St Andrews. It will publicly launch during this academic semester.

Topics covered during this virtual event will include:

  • Entrepreneurial support within the University.
  • Tier 1 (start-up) visas for international students.
  • Insights about web development and cloud computing from the perspective of an early-stage software start-up.

The virtual event will conclude with an interactive discussion where event participants can ask questions and meet the speakers.

Event participants will be invited to attend a focus group (to be scheduled at a later date), where they will be provided with early access to the ideaQuad software platform.
