Bank Of Ireland Accelerator


We aim to identify the 10 start-ups and early stage ventures that will benefit most from everything this exciting initiative can bring to an entrepreneur, his or her team and business. We’re looking for 10 start-ups with real potential to join us in Cork city for three months, as we help to them prepare for take-off in bringing their business to the next stage and beyond. The ultimate objective is to accelerate the development of these businesses so they can generate revenue, provide employment and create opportunities for investment and expansion. If you have a company that you’d like to grow, and if you have the passion, energy and commitment to succeed, this programme can help develop your entrepreneurial skills to make it happen and will drive your business forward.
