25 companies from across the island of Ireland are in with a chance of winning a share of €280,000 as this year’s InterTradeIreland Seedcorn Investor Readiness Competition regional finalists are announced ahead of the regional heats which start later this month.
Two winners from the regional finalists will go on to compete in the all-island final of the competition which will take place on Thursday 22nd November in Belfast.
To date, InterTradeIreland has supported over 2,300 enterprising companies through the Seedcorn process. With €238 million in new equity being raised by the companies which have reached the regional finals stage of the Seedcorn competition over the past 16 years, the competition has a strong track record of supporting early business start-ups to become investor ready.
