An invitation to develop key relationships, accelerate your development programme and grow your company.
IBM wants to team with entrepreneurs to build a smarter planet. Are you an early stage startup? Does your solution address issues enterprise customers are facing in the areas of banking, buildings, cities, cloud computing, education, energy, food, government, healthcare, infrastructure, intelligence, oil, products, public safety, rail, retail, stimulus, telecommunications, traffic, water, and work?
If so, IBM Global Entrepreneur can provide the support and resources to help you change the way the world works.
If your company is privately owned, in business less that 5 years, and with a turnover of less that $1,000,000.00, then this event is for you. The IBM Global Entrepreneur initiative is free to join, and you gain access to software, technical enablement support to help you develop your product and get to market faster.
IBM launched the Global Entrepreneur initiative in early 2010. This initiative is designed to help start-up companies capture emerging business opportunities in fast-growing industries like energy and utilities, healthcare, communications and government, and work with a new generation of entrepreneurs to tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues — like water, transportation, healthcare and the environment — that will transform the way people live and work.
Part of the IBM Global Entrepreneur initiative is IBM SmartCamp. This is an exclusive networking and mentoring event that identifies early-stage entrepreneurs who are developing business ventures that complement our Smarter Cities efforts by bringing together business, venture capital, academic, civic and government leaders for a conversation about innovation, human capital and economic development in a city environment.
Registration is from 10am and Sir Ken Robinson PhD, an internationally recognized leader in the development of education, creativity and innovation, will kick off the event at 10.30am
The event is launched in conjuntion with:
Northern Ireland Science Park, Derry City Council, Invest NI, Momentum and University of Ulster
