“NUIG have used John Geoghegan Business Model Canvas service recently for some potential commercial projects. John’s approach and professionalism in delivering the Business Model Canvas to NUIG researchers has helped us greatly. John pointed out ways that we can quickly reduce the time it takes to test the commercial viability of our IDEAS in creative ways. John is highly technical and can deep dive into various sectors so is suitable for a wide audience. He is always there to answer our questions. We highly recommend the BMC framework delivered by John Geoghegan.“ John McGuire, Commercialisation Executive, NUIGalway.

“As part of my process as a new start up, John Geoghegan brought me through the Business Model Canvas procedure. The BMC as a tool is cutting edge and an excellent method of capturing the thought process behind a business idea. John’s method of delivery was very professional and suitably challenging to ensure the maximum benefit was achieved for me. I would highly recommend the Business Model Canvas procedure for all new potential start-ups and indeed existing businesses. The BMC however is only as good as the facilitator delivering and challenging the thought process behind it and John is an excellent person at doing this. He allows you to develop your ideas independently and is never forceful with the approach, allowing for a natural process for the BMC to be developed.”  Brendan Allen, Founder, Farm-eye technologies.

“I participated in a six weeks workshop (basic research to business model) and John Geoghegan was my mentor. I am really impressed by his creative ways of swiftly bridging the gap between basic research and business model in a very short time. Although my research work is quite unique, John helped me to find a 2 billion US dollar market for my research paradigm. I highly recommend BMC framework to be delivered by John Geoghegan and I highly recommend scientists, engineers, researchers and entrepreneurs to attend these workshops.” Dr Hammad Ahmad, Marine Robotics Research Centre, University of Limerick.

"I recently attended a Business Model Canvas workshop organised by John Geoghegan as I was interested in learning about the potential for commercialisation of my research. Participating in the workshop was very informative as it outlined the various aspects that should be considered in order to develop a sound business model and to test the commercial viability of the idea. All in all, a very useful workshop for anyone considering pursuing a commercial venture." Dr Peter Richardson, Electricity Research Centre, UCD.

"Sprism is a technology start-up with a technology that can be applied to many applications and domains. We had difficulty identifying products including our minimal viable product. John's BMC workshop helped us realise we were focusing on the feature set rather than the solution set, and enabled us to identify a solid initial product. This has given our development effort great direction and renewed vigour, which in turn has driven the development of our business model." Eoin Meehan, Founder and MD, Sprism.
