FutureScope’s One2Watch finalists have raised a combined total of €6.2 million in the last two years.

FutureScope, Ireland’s number one innovation event specifically designed to promote collaboration between the tech and entrepreneurial ecosystems, announced that applications for FutureScope One2Watch 2019 are open.

The competition seeks to find Ireland’s most scalable business idea and awards the winning company with a platform to support its growth. FutureScope 2019 will take place in the Convention Centre Dublin on Thursday, 28th March.

The entrepreneur crowned the FutureScope One2Watch 2019 will win €2.5k in cash; a place on the Dublin BIC Investor Ready Programme; office space at CoWork@GEC including full GEC member benefits as well as expert legal consultancy from Dublin law firm, OBH Partners. 

“One2Watch is a fantastic competition that offers expert business support for ambitious start-ups looking to make their entrepreneurial ideas a reality”

The brightest and most innovative start-ups and entrepreneurs in the country will compete for the opportunity to present their business idea on the FutureScope stage where 1200 of those most involved in Ireland’s tech and start-up ecosystem converge to explore business and collaboration opportunities arising from emerging technologies.

One2Watch, a Dublin BIC initiative supported by OBH Partners, seeks to identify and promote the most scalable business idea. The winner will present with the biggest market opportunity and the most capable team to realise it.

Entry to the competition is open to entrepreneurs and start-ups from any sector whose idea is beyond the concept stage and is under five years since incorporation. If you meet this criteria, you can apply for the One2Watch here.

Michael Culligan, CEO of Dublin BIC, said, “One2Watch is a fantastic competition that offers expert business support for ambitious start-ups looking to make their entrepreneurial ideas a reality. It provides the winner a fantastic opportunity to pitch their idea to a very influential audience.”

One2Watch 2017 winner Conor Harkin, CEO and founder of ProVerum Medical said, “Winning One2Watch at FutureScope offered great exposure for the company and proved to be an excellent growth platform for us.”
