Community & Collaboration

Funding & Scaling Series

Pitching to business angels, meeting with seed fund managers, networking with venture capitalists, nurturing corporate partnerships, or applying for state grants can seriously eat into time and energy.  Being prepared and equipped with the right knowledge is key and the Dublin BIC Funding & Scaling Series will help you understand what you need to know.   

The next Funding & Scaling session will take place on March 9th, 2022. Registration is available here. 

At the Dublin BIC Funding & Scaling Series, you can

  • Learn about the early-stage investment landscape
  • Hear the perspectives of experienced investors
  • Download from start-ups that have successfully funded and scaled their business
  • Question the advisors that prepare start-ups for investment


What can I expect from Funding & Scaling?

There are four key elements to the event:

Perspectives from the front line: Two entrepreneurs (one early-stage start-up and one later-stage scale-up) who have successfully secured investment to grow their business will share the story of their journey and offer advice to those about to embark on a similar journey. 

Acquiring new knowledge: Each quarter, attendees benefit from the expertise of a guest speaker on a relevant theme such as what a company seeking investment needs to know from a legal, tax, structure, communications perspective.

Have questions answered: An interactive discussion with a panel of investors, successful entrepreneurs and advisors.

Constructive networking: Sticking around at the end is a must-do. This is where the contacts get made and the business gets done.
