WHAT IS PITCHENOMICS ALL ABOUT?
A brand new Kilkenny initiative in conjunction with Kilkenomics is offering Irish startups and existing small; large and medium companies an opportunity to fast-track their business through investment and will be offering this potentially-life-changing opportunity at this year’s Kilkenomics Festival Nov 9 – 12th, 2017.
WHO IS PITCHENOMICS FOR?
12 companies selected by the open programme will pitch their companies at the tech event, with the winners receiving investment between €10,000 and €100,000 in their companies and open up access for the companies to a vast network of investors, coaches, mentors and customers.
*Investment can be up to €100,000.
I’m really pleased to team up with Mike Driver on this new initiative. He’s always looking at how to add value, a sort of default position with him. And to have fun while doing it. Serious and fun, a little like Kilkenomics itself, I guess. I have no doubt that with Mike involved, Pitchenomics can achieve something that ticks both of those boxes.Richard Cook
