Entries sought for Wayra programme


Start-up accelerator Wayra has issued a call for entries to its Dublin programme. Ten academies are opening their doors to new projects next year, including the Dublin premises, which was established earlier this year.

Entrepreneurs can submit plans to the Telefónica-backed programme until January 21st. The ideas that make it will receive investment from the programme and access to expertise and office space.

Separately, the National Digital Research Centre's Lift-Off programme will see 15 start-ups compete today for follow-on investment from venture capitalists and investment angels. The event is the culmination of a three-month programme.
