Tangent Pioneers, powered by Bank of Ireland, is a new programme which will take our startups international offering the valuable opportunity to learn how to operate in a different (more competitive) market. For one week, Trinity startups will network, learn, pivot, pitch and grow in a new market with new challenges and opportunities.
In October 2018, Tangent will take the top four teams from our LaunchBox Student Accelerator programme, as well as some previous LaunchBox alumni teams, to New York City.
The programme will showcase 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 four-day programme is scheduled to take place during the first semester reading week (commencing 22nd 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.
