Today is a big day for Ireland's startup sector, we are launching our flagship initiative The Startup Gathering. As a key project in the Government's 2015 Action Plan for Jobs we are partnering with the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation and Ireland's biggest bank, Bank of Ireland, to put on the biggest distributed startup expo in the world from October 5th to the 10th.
The Startup Gathering will showcase Ireland’s vibrant startup sector to an Irish and International audience with events from 5 industries taking place over 5 days in 5 cities from October 5th to 10th, 2015 on the theme “Start, Scale, Succeed from Ireland”.
We are now in Phase 1 which is the national call for Projects, Events and Initiatives in each city to populate the schedule for the week. Anyone interested in submitting proposals can do so at http://startupireland.ie/startupgathering/ .
Let's work together to make our country the land of opportunity for startups that want to take on the world!
