Event description

Description

We believe that Ireland's indigenous startups and scaleups need a more supportive policy environment.

To date these innovation-driven enterprises haven't had a strong representative body to engage with government. Since Sept 2018 we've been working to change this.

Scale Ireland is an important national policy initiative for startups and scaleups in all sectors (from ICT to biotech and medtech) providing a strong independent voice for Ireland’s startup ecosystem.

About the Event

We’re hosting an engagement meeting in Sligo on 19th November where we’ll share our plans and seek input from startup ecosystem leaders from the region.

This is a valuable opportunity to support the development of a strong voice for indigenous startups. We're keen to ensure that Sligo, Donegal, Leitrim and the North West in general is properly represented in this initiative and we hope you can join.

Schedule: Breakfast from 7.30, Registration at 8.00am, kick off at 8.15am, and to finish at 9.30am sharp.

Note this is an open invite event - please share with your network!


Further Background

The team includes Brian Caulfield, serial entrepreneur and former Venture Partner at Draper Esprit (Project Chair), Liz McCarthy (Executive Director) and Conor Gouldsbury (Head of Policy & Public Affairs).

Following a year of policy work and stakeholder outreach, Scale Ireland is garnering strong support from within the startup ecosystem and constructive engagement with government.

Overseen by a 15-member Steering Group and funded with support from startup ecosystem leaders across Ireland, a key part of our work is to ensure we can represent the full breadth of Ireland's innovative entrepreneurs, strengthening our voice with government.

Sincere thanks to Sligo IT and ecosystem leaders across the region for support in making this event happen.
