Propellor Accelerator Seeks Applications
DCU has relocated its Propeller startup accelerator to Silicon Docks and is accepting applications for the programme until March 28. The accelerator is inviting applications from early-stage, hi-tech startups with domain expertise and B2B experience.
Lasting for five months, DCU Ryan Academy's Propeller programme has mentored a number of successful companies since its establishment in 2010. The deal on offer from the Ryan Academy is a cash injection of €30,000 towards business operating costs, complemented by a €15,000 package to include participation in the accelerator, working space in The Liffey Trust Centre, access to the DCU Ryan Academy's pool of investors and experienced mentors, and a full programme of workshops.
Drew O'Sullivan, director of Propeller, says: “At DCU Ryan Academy, we manage our own portfolio of high-calibre, blue-chip mentors and angel investors, developing an ecosystem which enables these experienced investors and successful entrepreneurs to invest their money, expertise and networks in helping really smart start-up teams accelerate their development.”
