TEAM researchers digital mental health innovation project is shortlisted for the Ireland Funds Business Plan Competition. This competition promotes both creativity and entrepreneurial skills for Irish-based early-stage technology entrepreneurs. The Ireland Funds has partnered with NDRC to help bring ideas from concept to pitch.

The Ireland Funds, a global philanthropic network, and NDRC, Ireland’s most successful digital accelerator, have combined forces to enable teams to transform their ideas in to a commercially viable startup.  Participants will have the opportunity to develop their business ideas and compete for the opportunity to pitch for a place on one of NDRC’s investment programmes, cash prizes and other supports.

Workshop Days take place at NDRC in Dublin in May and June and cover themes such as Problem Canvas, Customer Validation, Value Proposition + Market Opportunity and Pitch Preparation.

11 teams from across Ireland are competing to win up to €29,000.  We wish TEAM competitors Claudette Pretorius, Darragh McCashin and Hidde van der Meulen the best of luck in their final pitch on June 19, in Belfast.
