INVENT celebrates innovation in Northern Ireland.

Entrepreneurship is very much at the forefront of peoples’ minds and innovation is needed now more than ever. We have seen an amazing number of local innovators compete through several stages and are judged by a world-leading expert panel. The finalists will have the chance to take home a share of an increased prize fund of £47,000, with a £25,000 first prize for the overall winner.

The awards night will capture our 10 finalists’ journey, showcasing them through exciting videos and the popular elevator pitches before announcing the winners of 2021.
Supported by Bank of Ireland UK, join us online for 60 minutes of excitement and a true celebration of innovation in Northern Ireland. The event is free to attend so
