“We at Inspire are keen to actively support the proposition that contemporary angel investment is a key ingredient in enabling a successful rebalancing of the Northern Ireland economy,” said Mark Brotherston, CEO.

“Our aim in launching Inspire Business Angel Investment is to encourage entrepreneurship by facilitating access to the right funding at the right time, coupled with the expertise of an external network of external angel investors.

“So, if you live in the LCCC area and have a great idea for an inspiring new product, service or innovation with the potential to become a great business, we want to hear about it.”

Applicants must be at least 16 years of age and have a Business Plan and 2-year Financial Projection – however, if you don’t already have these documents, Inspire Business Centre can help you to compile them.

The top business ideas will be invited to a networking event at Inspire's offices on 25th October, with the most promising then asked to pitch for investment in a Dragon’s Den-type final at Lagan Valley Island, Lisburn, on Monday, 12th November.
