We love entrepreneurs
We enable our most experienced to help our most promising
We found the 25k Awards (now INVENT) to be an exhilarating and rewarding experience. It really helped us focus on our offering and the market for our technology. Since winning the Software and Digital Media category we showcased Liopa at Mobile World Congress and are now working on our first commercial engagement
Always putting the needs of the entrepreneur first, NISP CONNECT has created an incredible resource for technology startups in Northern Ireland. They provide a unique opportunity to collaborate and learn from a brilliant peer group of experienced technical and business people in a safe and supportive environment at a time in the life of your company where this knowledge and guidance can hugely improve your chances of success.
Through the Springboard programme, we were able to avail of extremely high quality mentoring from Virgin StartUp mentor, Darren Craig – who gave up his time each week to help us with the various problems we were facing – from business model generation to producing a sales strategy and preparing for investment. I can’t stress enough how valuable this was to have such a successful and passionate entrepreneur, who has been there and done it himself, giving us hands on mentoring and help on a weekly basis.
Springboard was a transformational experience for CADshare, and for me personally. I entered the process with a concept I thought had potential, and emerged at the other end with a solid foundation for the business and a well-articulated, credible investment proposition. Our EiRs provided world-class guidance and support, and access to the NISP global network of contacts will continue to prove invaluable. Springboard gave us the confidence to know that we really are “investor ready”.
