No better time than a recession to start a new business. if you are thinking of starting one then then there is no better place than a business incubator. Here are the ones I know about. Please add any I may have missed as comments.

Program Institution Location Duration How To Apply
DIT HotHouse DIT Dublin 12 months Via email. Instructions.
M50 Program ITT Dublin 12 months Via email. Instructions. Form.
Invent DCU Dublin 12 Months Via email. Instructions.
LEAP LIT Limerick 12 months Via email. Instructions. Form.

All these programs will get you fast track to CORD funding and offer incubation space and a variety of training programs. However, their most valuable asset is exposure to like minded entrepreneurs for a 12 month period.
