1 November 2017 | 0
NDRC has launched its Spring 2018 Investment Programme for start-ups.
Successful companies will secure investment of between €30,000 and €100,000 over the programme. They will also receive expert mentoring in customer discovery, business model design, sales and growth tactics, finance, investment, technology, marketing, design and communications.
BY the end of the programme, the ventures whose ideas have been commercially validated will receive finishing supports, including the potential for further investment and a programme of dedicated investor relations activity.
Ben Hurley, CEO, NDRC (pictured), said: “We invest and build startups with digital technology at the heart of the business but are very much looking for founders from a variety of backgrounds – industry, corporate and research. Digital is impacting every business and every sector and we are seeking people who have seen a problem in their area of expertise be it health, finance, HR or others and think there may be a digital solution with international growth potential.”
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to pitch to NDRC at the start of December and offers will be made by end of that month. The Accelerator Programme will then commence at the beginning of February.
Closing date for applications is 26 November. For more information visit www.NDRC.ie.
