  • Innovative start-up and early-stage companies from across Northern Ireland are being called on to enter InterTradeIreland’s Seedcorn Investor Readiness Competition, with the closing date for entries, Friday 27th May, fast approaching.

    The largest business competition of its kind, Seedcorn boasts an overall prize fund of €300,000 and gives companies the opportunity to become investor ready with expert feedback on business plans and pitches as well as increased exposure to investors.

    For the second consecutive year, a €20,000 prize is also up for grabs for best investment proposal from a company operating in the low carbon/green sector.

    Shane O’Hanlon, Funding for Growth Manager at InterTradeIreland, urged new-start and early-stage companies to enter ahead of the fast-approaching deadline. He said: “The benefits of entering go well beyond the significant cash prize – each company that enters wins access to new investor networks and the opportunity to get expert feedback on their business proposals from real-world investors.”
