Tangent Pioneers, powered by Bank of Ireland, is a programme which takes our startups international, offering the valuable opportunity to learn how to operate in a different and more competitive market. For one week, Trinity startups network, learn, pivot, pitch and grow in a new market with new challenges and opportunities
In October 2019, Tangent once again took the top four teams from our LaunchBox Student Accelerator programme, as well as some previous LaunchBox alumni teams, to New York City.
The programme showcases Tangent, Trinity’s Ideas Workspace, and our innovation partnership with Bank of Ireland to a diverse audience including New York-based startups, Enterprise Ireland, alumni, and the US startup ecosystem. It will raise the profile of Trinity internationally and allow us to engage with our US-based alumni in a meaningful way.
The five-day programme is scheduled to take place during the first semester reading week (commencing 21st October). Bank of Ireland’s Innovation Lab New York will host the programme. Sections of the week are reserved for our startups to organise and setup their own engagements and meetings within the ecosystem.
