RDS Entrepreneurs' Club

The RDS Entrepreneurs’ Club (REC) is new initiative in which the RDS provides a space where emerging entrepreneurs can connect with established business professionals to share ideas, and exchange expertise, to help Irish start-up businesses succeed.

Creating a successful business is hard work and there are challenges around every corner. Fortunately, entrepreneurs don’t have to go it alone. Their chance of success increases greatly with access to business knowledge, and the benefit of guidance by accomplished professionals is invaluable. The REC is a free network that allows entrepreneurs and volunteer business mentors an opportunity to connect so that they can tackle issues to improve and scale their businesses together.

We offer a collaborative community that matches the experienced with the emerging in a fun and social environment to ensure that Irish entrepreneurs thrive.

The monthly event series will include three five-minute pitch and five-minute Q&A sessions with some of the most vibrant and dynamic start-up businesses in Ireland. Food and drink will also be provided by some of the fantastic new craft beer and artisan food companies we have in Ireland in order to assist with networking and the continuation of discussions in a relaxed environment.

Join this new entrepreneurial community as either an


Emerging Entrepreneur

We see huge potential in combining the best talent from the exciting Dublin Start-up scene with the outstanding business experience, and expertise that we have within the membership of the RDS.  

The REC is targeted at businesses that are currently trading and want to grow but we are also happy to welcome those with entrepreneurial ambition to share in the insight provided.

The RDS has over 3,500 members and a growing number of corporate members from a wide range of industry backgrounds that are able to pass on years of invaluable knowledge, skills, and experience, to grow businesses just like yours.

The RDS Members’ Club is a unique setting for business collaboration and discussion. In addition to our excellent facilities such as our Members bar and restaurant, breakout meeting rooms, parking, Wi-Fi, and research library, you have the opportunity to connect with fellow entrepreneurs in an environment where sharing ideas is encouraged by all.

The RDS is looking for experienced industry and business professionals who want to engage with high potential start-up businesses. Becoming part of the REC is a unique opportunity to advise emerging entrepreneurs, connect with fellow business people and pass on your knowledge and expertise to the next generation of business leaders.

If you have been a business owner or involved in business for a few years, there is a good chance you have developed a whole range of skills and experiences that make you much better at what you do now than when you first started out. 

Typically, these capabilities have been acquired through day to day experiences that have helped make your business a success. This experience that has been acquired along your journey to become successful in business could help other businesses grow and thrive. We want you to be involved, as your experiences and expertise will provide invaluable benefits to our emerging entrepreneurs. Using your skills and knowledge to help others will help strengthen the RDS business community and will also hugely impact on our national economic development. 

Your experience gives you the skills to mentor and we can provide you with the opportunity to connect with some of Ireland’s top emerging entrepreneurs.
