Following a Workshop organised by YSI & a review of several options- the IgnYte group selected the Design of an App showing wheelchair accessability as a worthwhile project.
Support has been secured from the local Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) office in Drogheda, Nebula Consultancy, a Software Developer based at the Mill & several wheelchair users based in the local area. The aim is to have a prototype Android App ready, covering the Drogheda area, by the end of April.
The success of the project could lead to an App offering National coverage -through the support of the Regional offices of the IWA.

This initiative lead by YSI has also given great insight to the IgnYte programme participants as to how one goes about setting up a new business.
