What is First Fridays for Startups?

First Fridays for Startups is a platform for the tech startup ecosystem to come together on a regular basis, enabling them to learn, connect and grow.

Welcome

Giving you the inside track on who’s who and what’s happening across Ireland’s startup ecosystem.

 

Perfect if you’re new to the ecosystem, looking to get the bigger picture, or just trying to meet new people.

Mentor

We have access to over 2000+ experts with deep industry, investment, or entrepreneurial experience.

 

Our curated mentoring programme connects you to the people, knowledge and resources you need to accelerate your entrepreneurial journey.

Educate

We invite some of the best-in-class knowledge holders to our stage for deep dive workshops to help you upskill or reach your next milestone.

 

These 30 minute rapid seminars are followed by a 15-minute audience Q&A to help you plug in and switch on.

Inspire

Our keynote talks give you the chance to learn from seasoned startup founders that have “been there, done that”.

 

They share lessons of the successes and failures from their own entrepreneurial journey to give insight into what it takes to build a successful startup.
