With voting closing at midnight, now is your last chance to back Pulsate founder Patrick Leddy, who is heading to Korea next week for the World Start-up Competition and to inform the world about Irish start-ups.
Pulsate, which focuses on helping retailers capitalise on new internet of things technologies, such as Apple’s iBeacon, won the Irish leg of a competition to find the country’s best start-up to represent Ireland at the competition on 24 November in Seoul.
The company fought off 34 other Irish start-ups for the honour of representing Ireland in the global contest.
“We hope to build on the growing momentum in the Irish start-up sector to send a message out to the world that Ireland is the land of opportunity for start-ups that want to take on the world,” Leddy said.
Leddy will compete against 40 of the world’s best tech start-ups for a prize fund of US$100,000 at the international final.
Online voting – including votes for Leddy – will account for 20pc of the semi-final scores.
The World Start-up Competition is being run by Korea’s Dream Bank Foundation for young entrepreneurs in conjunction with the Start-up Nations Summit in November.
Leddy will join #StartupIreland CEO Eoin Costello on the journey to Korea. Costello will be addressing the Start-up Nations Summit on the topic of the rapidly emerging start-up ecosystem in Ireland.
