Once again we will be taking over the Club Workspace basement to host an evening where all manner of tech & digital startups can learn, share, connect, and enjoy the craic!
During the social / meetup we will be holding a 50 minute session on ensuring success before, during, and after an accelerator programme. This will include industry-leading guest speakers sharing insider’s perspectives on how to give a stellar performance throughout your accelerator experience.
This event is being kindly supported by our friends at StartPlanetNI, who will be there on the night to tell you a little about their upcoming accelerator programme that is currently open for applications.
7:20 - 8:10 pm - Industry leading Guest speakers & a short info session about StartPlanetNI accelerator
8:10 - 8:45pm...ish - Drinks, networking, and chit-chat.
Industry leading guest speakers will include:
Diane Roberts of Xcell Partners will reveal how to create a winning accelerator application
Wayne Murphy Program Director of StartPlanetNI will explain how startups should (but often don’t) make the most of accelerator opportunities
An experienced mentor will speak about how to make the most of the mentor / mentee relationship, and how startups most often fail to achieve this (TBC)
A startup founder that has gone through a well known accelerator programme will describe some valuable lessons they have learned, how they benefited from taking part in a programme, and how their approach would be different next time around (TBC)
After the speakers there will be a group discussion when you can put some of your most burning accelerator-related questions to the people in the know!
We will then wrap things up with some more networking chit-chat, beer, wine and soft drinks.
This Event is supported byStartPlanetNI- A Belfast-based Accelerator programme that offers 10 successful startups £15k Equity Investment, 3 months co-working space (with a 6 month extension on offer without charge) during and after support and commitment from a world class team and the chance to gain up to £40k investment on completion of the programme.
