The winner will receive a range of Dublin BIC supports, including three months free accommodation in the Guinness Enterprise Centre, and a cash prize.

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. The deadline for entries is 6th April 2018.  To apply go towww.futurescope.ie/one2watch.

It provides the winner an amazing opportunity to pitch their idea to investors and business leaders from the most successful large Irish enterprises and multinationals.

“Technological advancements are presenting both huge opportunities and challenges in our world. FutureScope is all about recognising current trends and providing future insights on the most innovative future technologies. FutureScope also aims to provide the perfect stage for fostering collaboration, and One2Watch 2018 will bring a showcase idea to the exact people who can offer the required support and investment needed to scale.”
