Bigger and Better
The sold-out event in January 2018, was hailed as a tremendous success reaching full capacity. Nimbus aims to capitalise on this success and deliver an even bigger and better event in 2019 by using all of the first floor of Páirc Uí Chaoimh conference facility in Cork. Starting with an impressive line-up of speakers from across the Atlantic and Europe as well as doubling the stand space for exhibitors which include many of the Technology Gateways in Ireland and multi-national collaborators.
The topics covered on the day will include Internet of Things, Blockchain, Space, Security, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented/Virtual Reality, Funding and Business Expansion. Clinics will provide a unique opportunity to get expert advice from field experts in technology, investment, funding avenues, entrepreneurship and academic research. These sessions will provide invaluable advice and guidance on how attendees can facilitate investment, drive technology innovation, create collaborations and foster new commercial relationships.
This event is targeted at start-up businesses who are fully discounted provided the company is under 3 years and employing no more than 6 employees. It is also beneficial for researchers in academia, investors, entrepreneurs, business owners and top executives from large multinationals.
