Bank of Ireland is welcoming eight technology startups to a six-month accelerator programme at its newly-launched StartLab Galway incubator.

Based in a custom-designed Bank of Ireland building on Eyre Square, the eight companies will have access to free desk space, conference rooms and one-on-one sessions with coaches and mentors, introductions to investors and support from the bank's innovation team.

The six month curriculum will includes sessions on business model validation, lean methodology, building strategic partnerships and stress-testing the product/market fit. The programme culminates in a ‘Demo Day’, with the opportunity to pitch to senior business executives, venture capitalists and investors.

David Tighe, head of innovation, Bank of Ireland says: “StartLab and its customised programmes will focus on helping these businesses to develop their teams, fine-tune their ideas and engage potential customers and investors. Supporting and empowering startups is at the heart of Bank of Ireland’s enterprise ethos and we look forward to working with our technology entrepreneurs over the coming months.”
