Galway daily news NDRC hosts open night for local entrepreneurs at the Portershed

NDRC are hosting an open night at the Portershed co-working space to tell up and coming entrepreneurs about the supports available to them.

The NDRC is running its third major accelerator programme at the Portershed this summer, with spots for eight startup entrepreneurs whose companies will each receive €75,000 worth of supports.

Of that, €50,000 will be a cash investment in the company, and a further  €25,000 is in programme service costs.

Prior accelerators in 2017 and 2018 saw local start-up companies Appraisee and PlanDomino go on to secure investment offers.

This Open Night will have more information about the upcoming accelerator programme, along with general discussion about the NDRC’s approach to investing in startups, and presentations from past success stories.

Founder and CEO of Buymedia, Fergal O’Connor, as well as NDRC at PorterShed alumn Richard Springer, founder of Tribal, will discuss their startups’ journeys from inception to investment.

Buymedia helps advertisers achieve a better advertising ROI by matching their campaign criteria with the best fit advertising solution.

Tribal has developed and proven an online assessment platform, backed up by scientific research and complex algorithms, to collate psychological data on software engineers’ task engagement.

The Open Night will take place at the Portershed co-working space off Eyre Square on Tuesday, March 19.
