About Us

The Nexus Innovation Centre

Nexus is a purpose-built Innovation Centre at the heart of the University of Limerick. Nexus is a growing community of entrepreneurs which: leverages the University’s knowledge base; enables accelerated business development; and makes connections with potential investors, experienced entrepreneurs and the wider community.


Nexus enables the accelerated development of national and international start-ups with global reach and the commercialisation of academic research resulting in the creation of new businesses and jobs. Nexus is a hub of activity where entrepreneurs can develop, collaborate and grow. The Centre aims to increase entrepreneurship with an international trading focus.


At Nexus we challenge start-ups to move past conventional ideas around businesses development and encourage them to become highly connected agile, smart start-ups.
