The University College Cork Entrepreneurial and Social Society was established in 2008 by Sam Fitzpatrick. Since then the society has grown and expanded into the largest society in UCC hosting a vast range of entrepreneurial events every year, including motivational speeches from some of Ireland’s leading entrepreneurs. However, we do enjoy ourselves at times….

The E&S social events have a reputation for being the biggest and best on campus! We have an exciting line up planned for the year ahead, with some brand new events in the pipeline! Our annual calendar includes E&S Christmas Day, Iron stomach and the renowned European Winter Break.

E&S brings some of the top entrepreneurs in Ireland to UCC. In the past number of years these have included The Apprentice’s Bill Cullen, JP McManus, Sean Gallagher & Trustev’s Donal Cahalane. Alongside this, we have hosted competitions such as Dragon’s Den, and Ireland’s first Student Start Up Weekend, which brings like-minded people together to help start 10 new business in 54 hours. Our range of events give students the opportunity to network with one another and gain insight and guidance from some of Ireland’s leading entrepreneurs.

These are just some of our events…

  • Startup Weekend Cork
  • Student Revolution
  • The Startup School
  • CoderDojo in conjunction with the BIS Society

The social aspect of the society is just as dominant as the Entrepreneurial side! Every year we organise exciting new, and never seen before events. We pride ourselves on organising events that will go down as some of the most memorable nights of the social calender at UCC! Our winter break is probably our most anticipated event as well as students favourite event of the year, but what is it? Every year we organise a trip to an unknown mystery European destination, but here’s the catch… you won’t know where you’re headed until you check in at the airport!! Spaces are limited, so keep an eye here and on our social media pages for ticket release dates!

Here’s a few of our social events!

  • Christmas Day
  • Iron Stomach
  • The Winter Break
  • 12 Pubs of Christmas

Themed club nights, and much more!
