We believe young people are central to unlocking Northern Ireland's future as a globally renowned knowledge economy. That’s why we put them at the heart of an inspirational network of experienced entrepreneurs, universities and employers.

The Night Of Ambition is an annual event bringing together our Generation Innovation network of 15-18 year old thinkers, makers and do-ers. It is also an opportunity for teachers and parents to get up to speed on emerging trends in technology and knowledge-based careers in Northern Ireland.
The night features a mix of inspiring talks from a range of pioneering individuals specialising in areas including entrepreneurship in coding, gaming, social media, science, tech and design.
In the past we have welcomed speakers including representatives from Facebook, global superstar will.i.am, Twitter Co-Founder Jack Dorsey, MythBusters host Adam Savage and YouTube star Shane Todd. For more information please contact us here.
Our Day Of Ambition workshops are driven by our vision that Northern Ireland will be one of the leading entrepreneurial knowledge economies in Europe by 2030. Each workshop aims to create the next generation of innovators who are curious, creative problem solvers, collaborators and excellent communicators, enabling them to achieve their potential in an ever changing world. It also sets out to open the eyes of young people to aim higher, push boundaries and prepare for careers as innovators.
