Inbound Investors

What is Inbound Investors?

Inbound Investors is a one day event that introduces the latest innovative companies from Northern Ireland that are seeking investment to investors from outside Northern Ireland. 

Together with our experts, we arrange bespoke, pre-matched meetings optimised for your specific sector and need in one location and, with the support of our local ecosystem partners, work to prepare businesses in the run-up to the event, this enables investors to connect with companies meticulously matched to their investment criteria, and vice versa, fostering meaningful interactions 

Why attend?

For NI companies seeking investment this is a unique opportunity to meet with between 5-10 investors in one day, with tailored support from our team of experts in the run up to the main event, preparing you to capitalise on the opportunity. For more information on the company application process and participation requirements please click here.  

For investors, this event gives you a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of emerging opportunities in NI, hear the latest from the ecosystem, meet companies who have been pre matched to you based on your investment criteria and network with peers and key partners in the NI ecosystem. All in one day!!  

We work hard to ensure the right investors meet the right companies so that both can get the most from this one day event.*

*Ultimately, it is always up to the participating company and funding source to agree and finalise a deal. Catalyst can provide information based on its extensive experience, but it does not provide advice.
