NDRC Dublin Accelerator

NDRC's next accelerator programme begins in early 2020. If you are interested in investment, please come talk to us before January 19.

We would like you to tell us a little more about your startup, the Problem you are trying to solve, the Market, your Team & Traction and needs from the programme.

Please note, we will be reviewing these applications on January 19 and we will respond to you then with whatever follow-up information we need, or suggestions on your next steps.

This form (apply) will be reviewed by our Venture Investment team.

What we look for?

  • Team: A dedicated team with a deep understanding of the market and the ability and ambition to build a globally scalable business
  • A significant and important problem worth solving
  • Market: A global opportunity
  • Stage/Maturity: Significant customer validation already completed and the ability to be investor ready within nine months
