NDRC’s latest LaunchPad accelerator ready for applicants

13 Nov 2015

February sees the start of NDRC’s latest LaunchPad accelerator programme, with €30,000 investment on offer for successful applicants.

LaunchPad is a 12-week programme, running from February through to April, held in the NDRC on Crane Street in Dublin.

Seeking out entrepreneurs with digital ideas, the 13th iteration of NDRC’s popular accelerator programme will host an information evening on site on 2 December.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the NDRC team, other portfolio companies and find out more about the programme and the application process.

The 12th edition kicked off in September, with 10 start-ups receiving up to €20,000 in funding, with February’s edition seeing that funding figure rise by 50pc.

“We are looking for entrepreneurs and start-ups that can demonstrate some unique domain knowledge (in terms of industry knowledge or a deep understanding of the problem) and can clearly show why they will be exceptional at execution,” said NDRC’s Gary Leyden.

“We want founders and start-up teams that can show us that there is something innovative about their approach to addressing the market problem”.

The overall deadline for applications is 11 December, with full details here.
