NI has 2 top flight universities, agricultural colleges and private companies providing a pipeline of new and innovative ideas. There is a strong local culture of technical innovation and entrepreneurship, backed by good regional aid including cross border all-Ireland support. Pitching companies are carefully selected and prepared to provide succinct high quality presentations in a very relaxed and sociable atmosphere.
