Support will include:

  • 6 month programme beginning in January 2018.
  • £15,000 if you are selected onto the programme.
  • Up to 12 months free co-working space at Ormeau Baths, Belfast’s newest start-up hub.
  • Help with refining business ideas and identifying growth opportunities.
  • Individual mentoring support from experienced international mentors.
  • Introduction and help with pitching to potential investors.
