The National Digital Research Centre is looking for applications for its LaunchPad accelerator programme, which will start in September.
LaunchPad is geared towards aspiring entrepreneurs with innovative digital start-up ideas. It provides support to successful small teams of up to three people through a 12-week intensive programme accelerating their concept or idea through to market-ready outputs.
Participants will have access to a hands-on mentoring programme to guide development, weekly workshops and networking opportunities with industry experts, and investment of up to €20,000 per project.
All projects work towards a product or service launch, and a pitch to a panel of interested investors and successful entrepreneurs at the “LaunchPad Lift Off” event at NDRC in November 2011.
