Evervault and myStudyPal start-ups join NovaUCD programme

  • The centre for New Ventures and Entrepreneurs at UCD (University College Dublin), NovaUCD is continuing to support students and start-up companies, bringing on board two new start-ups in the cyber-security and edtech fields.

    NovaUCD prides itself on supporting innovation and encouraging entrepreneurial spirit among students, offering state of the art facilities for several companies founded by students who are currently studying undergraduate degrees at the University. This week the centre announced that cybersecurity start-up Evervault and edtech start-up myStudyPal have both joined the "entrepreneurial ecosystem."

    Evervault, which was founded by Shane Curran, ensures that encrypted data is separated from any potential attackers. Shane manages this platform and is also in his first year of Business and Law at an undergraduate level at UCD. His level of commitment has not gone unnoticed, leading him to become the overall winner of the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition in 2017.

    myStudyPal is a web and mobile app that provides second level students with an easy, efficient and practical way to make a study timetable. The company was founded by Mark Nealon, who opted to take a gap year to create and develop this solution which will enable students to structure their study around their personal lives through a well thought out cloud-based study timetable.

    NovaUCD is a purpose-built, state of the art facility for high tech and knowledge intensive start-ups providing a comprehensive business support programme for client companies. The exciting developments for NovaUCD started after UDD announced a substantial development project to renovate and extend the east court yard with six and half million years being pust aside. After such a substantial investment the capacity to support start-ups will increase by over 50%.

    "I would like to take this opportunity of welcoming Shane and Mark to our community of entrepreneurs at NovaUCD. It is fantastic to see these two young and talented entrepreneurs combining their undergraduate studies with developing and scaling their start-ups," said Tom Flanagan, Director of Enterprise and Commercialisation.
