‘Startup Next is a really intensive six-week programme that gives start-ups clarity in their value proposition’
– GENE MURPHY, BANK OF IRELAND
Over a six-week evening programme, successful candidates accepted on to Startup Next will have access to a high-tempo mentor-driven programme with weekly key speakers discussing areas such as customer acquisition, presenting, product market fit, market sizing and funding.
“Startup Next is a really intensive six-week programme that gives start-ups clarity in their value proposition, gets them in front of top mentors and speakers and prepares them for seed investment and accelerator programs,” explained Gene Murphy, entrepreneur-in-residence at Bank of Ireland and Startup Next Dublin organiser.
“Our previous cohorts have gone on to great things with their start-ups and we’re really looking forward to working with our next round of start-ups for our 2016 winter programme,” Murphy added.
Interested start-ups are being encouraged to start now and apply before the application deadline arrives on 30 March.
