Bank of Ireland launches new national Accelerator Programme

Bank of Ireland have announced the launch of the “Bank of Ireland Accelerator Programme” for start-up SMEs and talented entrepreneurs across all business sectors. This national programme offers up to ten Start-Ups an opportunity to join this unique initiative in what is a highly intensive three month journey of discovery commencing September 2014.

During this time, participants will receive the input and guidance of some of Ireland and Europe’s leading mentors and coaches from a network including Bill Liao and Sean O’Sullivan of SOS Ventures as well as Gavin Duffy of Dragon’s Den. The sole objective is to help develop and support viable, revenue positive, self-sustaining, high potential start-ups, whilst also creating opportunities for jobs, investment and expansion. The Bank of Ireland Accelerator Programme will be based at Penrose Wharf in the heart of Cork City. Bank of Ireland is providing the funding for this programme and is excited about supporting what will be a truly dynamic and intense development opportunity for those selected to participate.
