The third Bridge Network Meet the Investor event was held in the Rubicon Centre, CIT Campus on 14 November last.

The event brings together the consortium’s community of commercialisation managers, researchers and early-stage entrepreneurs, together with members of the investment community.

The aim of the event is to help early stage entrepreneurs prepare their future business strategy and to become more attractive to investment opportunities. Entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to present their business ideas and the expert panel provide feedback and business advice in a nonthreateningenvironment.

The expert panel who so kindly volunteered their time on the day included Aidan O’ Driscoll, IRRUS Investments; Alison Crawford Atlantic Bridge Venture Capital; Mairead English-Maher Enterprise Ireland and Declan O’ Mahony , Entrepreneur in Residence, Tyndall, UCC.

Invaluable feedback and advice was generously shared with researchers and entrepreneurs on the day, as well as future first introductions made to contacts from the investment community

The next event will take place in Spring 2019. For more information please email
