36Ignite NI Accelerator 2020 Investor Day — Pitches

The IgniteNI Accelerator would like to invite you to their Investor Preview event for this year’s Accelerator teams on Thursday 28th May at 11am.

Normally, investors would meet our ten Accelerator teams over a nice lunch in Dublin, London and Belfast. These investor lunches have been an instrumental part of the $14M that has been raised by IgniteNI teams so far.

The teams have made great progress and they can’t wait to share this with you. Each team will do a short pitch highlighting their business and progress, lasting no more than an hour. Afterwards you will have an opportunity to meet teams.

After moving to a virtual format in their first week, they doubled down their support for these teams. In almost 3 months, they’ve ran over 500 sessions and heard from a diverse set of entrepreneurs and investors including Eoghan McCabe (CEO of Intercom), Susan O’Malley (Senior Director of IDEO), Jim Franklin (ex-CEO of SendGrid), Allison Kopf (Founder & CEO of Artemis), Brett Hurt (Founder of BazaarVoice) and Whurley.

They are thankful to you and everyone who have supported these teams through mentorships, office hours and workshops.

The ten teams pitching are:

  • Altra – Making communication easier for care homes.
  • Book Entertainment – Booking management platform for musicians and entertainers
  • CORA – An operating system for multi-million pound construction projects.
  • ESTHER – Peer-2-peer platform connecting donors to those in financial crisis.
  • OBBI – Onboarding and compliance for manufacturing and construction.
  • Payhere – Removing the barriers to businesses taking online payments.
  • Shopper.com – Community powered platform for finding the best prices.
  • SideQuest – Community based app store for Oculus Quest.
  • Skylark Control – A virtual control room for wind farms.
  • TrueStock – Sales demand prediction for retailers.

The IgniteNI Accelerator – when not operating virtually – is based out of the Ormeau Baths in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Each year, supporting 10 companies from anywhere in the world with the financial support of Invest Northern Ireland.
