About the Event
We are hosting an open innovation breakfast lecture followed by an interactive masterclass in Riddel Hall, with Henry Joseph-Grant, Chief Commercial Officer at Talixo.
Northern Ireland has lots going for it, two great universities, a long standing entrepreneurial culture, well established traditional industries such as agriculture, manufacturing and construction, yet many talented people choose to chase their dreams elsewhere be it England, USA, Australia or New Zealand, almost every family has a relative who has moved overseas, our diaspora is huge. Being part of that diaspora himself, Henry believes that with only 1.8m people and a relatively small ecosystem, it is hard for many to return home or not leave in the first place if they want to excel and reach their professional and entrepreneurial goals, but with the increasing importance of tech and startups to any economy, he passionately feels that can change.
Henry will share what he feels are the key ingredients needed for Northern Ireland to put it's best foot forward and build a world class startup ecosystem, that will not only prevent brain drain, but also attract the world's finest investors, operators and entrepreneurs to invest in, start and work for startups based here.
The second part of the morning has a limited number of places – on a first come, first served basis and will feature an interactive workshop with Henry where he will take individuals through some specific challenges.
