Nine new, exciting startups in Ireland’s sunny South East recently began the first ever NDRC at ArcLabs accelerator programme, supported by Enterprise Ireland.
The programme is the second regional accelerator undertaken by NDRC, following the successful delivery of NDRC at PorterShed, in Galway, last year.
The Accelerator programme is part of Enterprise Ireland’s overall strategy to increase the number and quality of start-ups that have the potential to employ more than 10 persons and achieve €1 million in export sales within three years.
Once a company joins NDRC, the team works intensively with each, over a short time frame, to help them understand what value their company can offer customers, their strategy for growth and getting them ready to meet the demands of both investors and customers.
The short time span and the intensity of this commercialisation work is the acceleration process. It is this offering of capital investment and development support that makes NDRC effective.
Ben Hurley, NDRC CEO, said: “It is wonderful to welcome such exciting new businesses into NDRC’s portfolio. With the help of our regional partners, NDRC at ArcLabs is further proof of the entrepreneurial talent that is spread throughout Ireland.”
The nine companies NDRC has invested in comprise:
