NDRC Dublin Accelerator

NDRC's most recent Dublin accelerator programme began in March 2019, with a second due later in the year. If you are interested in a €135,000 investment, please come talk to us.

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 every 2-4 weeks 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
  • Solution: While we like deep technology solutions, it is not a pre-requisite. Startups must be able to test the riskiest parts of their solution during the accelerator
