DUBLIN BIC supporting female entrepreneurs: Innovate Programme 2017!

Congratulations to BeeInstant, Innovate Programme 2017 pitch competition winner!

EBN Member Dublin BIC, in collaboration with Enterprise Ireland, empowers female entrepreneurs helping them take their ideas to the market through their Innovate Programme. As part of the programme, the 10 startups received €50,000 in equity funding (from a total fund of €750,000) from Enterprise Ireland Female Entrepreneurs' Competitive Start Fund (CSF) and underwent an intensive business coaching delivered by Dublin BIC at Guinness Enterprise Centre (GEC) to get investment-ready in only 12 weeks.

At the end of the programme, on 30 November 2017, the female-led companies pitched in front of investors showing the impressive progress they have made thanks to the business coaching provided by Dublin BIC.

BeeInstant, a startup providing real-time monitoring for software performance, was selected as the pitch winner among the nine other female-led startups that participated in the programme.
