MiniBar Meets Northern Ireland

  • April 26, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi all

on the 26th of April we welcome six hot, young start-ups brought to us by the “NISPO Fund”.

The £10million NISPO (The Northern Ireland Spin Out) Fund is managed by our friends at E-Synergy so we have teamed up with them there to introduce some great Northern Irish entrepreneurs with new & exciting technology businesses to the London start-up scene.

Each of the Northern Irish companies have been supported by the NISPO Fund either through grant aid (of up to £40k), equity investment (of up to £250k) and/or mentoring & advice.

We will hear about their businesses, and their experience of creating a start-up, raising investment, engaging with developers while being based in Northern Ireland.

We will also be hearing from Mike Bowman from E-Synergy Ltd & Director of the NISPO Fund. He will be sharing his experience of working with the Northern Irish companies and giving his opinions on how the start-up industry differs across the water!


Aaron Taylor – Goprezzo
Breda Doherty – Hubb it
Vincent Breslin – Sians Plan

Chris Johnston – Adoreboard
Patrick Cutliffe  - Choorpy

 

See you there.
Cheers

    good attendance. Needs colour coding for categories such as developer, start-up, biz dev, funding, student etc for better networking. I have spoken to Christian, organizer about it. I don't mind volunteering for the next event.

    Good networking opportunity and interesting ideas, but the presentations were too short to understand the business ideas.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone! If you fancy a chat about design, tech or wine (I don't really like Guinness), do give me a shout.
