Technology startups with an interest in moving to Ireland are being encouraged to pitch for their chance to win €500k of funding.
The Irish Government’s business development agency, Enterprise Ireland, and London-based TechHub are hosting a pitch competition through which startups can gain access to €500k of funding and places at the upcoming Dublin Web Summit.
The competition is part of an Irish Government campaign to attract technology companies.

Stage 1: the 2-minute one-on-one pitch – pitch your idea in under 60 seconds to one judge for the chance to go through to the next stage
Stage 2: the 5-minute panel pitch – the best 8 businesses will have a further 5 minutes to pitch their idea in more detail to the full panel of judges
Judges on the day include John Kenny from VC Delta Partners, Paul McDonnell from Dublin Web Submit and serial entrepreneur and Jolt Online founder Dylan Collins.
