NI Startup? Fancy showcasing your startup at this year's Digital DNA event? We've got up to 10 spaces for NI startups to do just that. Here's the details!

A startup exhibitor package at Digital DNA 2022 gives startups access to over 80 talks featuring over 120 Speakers, over 2500+ attendees, the opportunity for 121 meetings, a startup pod in which to exhibit over the two days in addition to full-access event tickets – and all for FREE! 

Digital DNA, the two-day Northern Irish tech event is back! Taking place at St George’s Market, Belfast on the 14th and 15th June this year, startups will have the opportunity to showcase in a designated startup zone, providing them with direct access to an estimated 2500+ visitors and business delegates as well as the potential to meet and arrange meetings with a host of startup champions, business mentors and brands. 

FLAGSHIP-BUTTON-01-1Now in its 10th year, the annual Digital DNA Belfast event is set to be even bigger with an amazing lineup of speakers, exhibitors and exciting new areas, jam-packed with thought provoking talks from some of the brightest minds in the tech industry on everything from AI, FinTech and CyberSecurity through to Robotics, MedTech and the Future of Work.

This year, the upStart Showcase area, powered by Startacus will be a dedicated space for startups and leading organisations engaged in supporting early stage companies, to connect, network & gain fresh insight and knowledge. 

The showcase area has been kindly sponsored by Raise Ventures, SeedLegals, Tughans, Belfast Met and Glandore, thereby providing 8-10 Northern Irish tech / digital startups with the opportunity to exhibit at the tech-focused event for free. 

In addition to the showcasing area sponsors, Barclays Eagle Labs Belfast are kindly sponsoring drinks for a startup gathering that will take place on the afternoon of 14th June in the designated upStart Showcase area!

The Showcase area is open to applications from digital / tech NI startups less than 5 years old, who have raised less than £750k in grants and investment to date.

  • A dedicated pod to showcase and promote their startup 

  • Brand placement on the pod

  • Access to a relaxed networking area and space to connect with mentors and brands
