Startup Island | Spike Island, Cork, 18 – 19 November

Have you got what it takes to survive?


On the site of a disused former prison on an island off the coast of Cork, Startup Island will bring together investors, entrepreneurs, startups and experts for a gritty, two-day, overnight bootcamp. With a host of leading entrepreneurs set to offer key business insights, as well as those sharing their own startup stories, Startup Island promises to be a startup event like no other.

Startups will be pushed outside of their comfort zones with a physical, army-style bootcamp putting them through their paces. Business masterclasses will cover a range of important topics, with everything from pitching to raising capital on the table.

A night in the ‘cells’ will give startups plenty of time to think about their business models, while networking with fellow ‘inmates’ could open up some unique business opportunities.

Startup Island is one of the key events of this year’s Global Startup Gathering. Global Startup Gathering 2016 is a two-day series of events  aimed at startups and startup policymakers. It runs from the 18 – 20 November in Cork.
