Eleven tech start-ups from Ireland, the US, Poland and India have been selected to take part in Lab353, an accelerator and investment programme based in Dublin and led by SVG Partners and Eircom Business Solutions.
The mobile, cloud and ‘Internet of Things’ start-ups will enter a nine week boot camp style programme, starting on 25 March, with the aim of establishing or scaling commercially viable operations in Europe and the US.
The start-ups will be located in Eircom’s Internet House in Temple Bar for the duration of the programme, where they will have access to markets, infrastructure capability, strategic management consulting, a global network of mentors from Silicon Valley and Ireland, as well as corporate, legal and tax services through Lab353 partners.
Following the nine week programme, the companies will pitch their ideas to a group of investors at the ITLG Silicon Valley Global Tech Summit in Dublin, with the aim of securing up to US$1m investment each.
A model of the successful Silicon Valley programme, Lab353 was established as a strategic partnership between SVG Partners and eircom Business Solutions, and the programme is also supported by Arvato, Digicel and industry experts from the world’s top technology companies.
