We accelerate access to talent, customers, partners and potential investors, through offline channels like regular fast-pitch meetup events and networking opportunities, as well as industry expert panels and fireside chats, and online digital tools.
We host 10+ events per annum in NYC, 2 in London and 1 in Chicago. Each event is prescribed a theme (e.g. fintech etc.) where leading industry experts are invited as keynote speakers to educate our audiences. Following the keynotes, 3 Irish startups (related to the theme of the event) are invited to pitch to the community. The startups are advised to ask the community for relevant support, introductions and feedback. Our aim is to add value to the presenting companies and our community, by networking.
Live events are held approx. every 5 weeks in New York, between September and June. Attendance range is typically at 100+ (event space capacity) , with a much larger audience also tuning in to our live stream.
Our Digital Irish Podcast series is an in-depth investigation of Irish Innovators and emerging tech firms around the world, featuring Enterprise Ireland representatives, Irish Consulates, tech firms and businesses that are paving the Irish international innovation path to success.
In addition to our events program and podcast, we also host invitation-only pitch evenings, J1 career workshops, and training workshops across a variety of disciplines (e.g. Sales Leadership).
