INVENT 2020 FINAL
INVENT celebrates innovation in Northern Ireland and 2020 has been no different, during these extraordinary times we have moved online. We have seen an amazing number of local innovators compete through several stages and judged by a world-leading expert panel as they seek to win a share of the £33,000 prize fund.
The awards night will capture our 12 finalists’ journey, showcasing them through exciting videos and the popular elevator pitches before announcing the winners of 2020.
This year we created a special new category, the ‘2020 Innovators Award’ which will celebrate how local companies and innovation communities have collaborated, pivoted and leaned into the challenges COVID-19 presented.
Supported by Bank of Ireland UK, join us online for 90 minutes of excitement and a true celebration of innovation in Northern Ireland. The event is free to attend.
DATE: THURSDAY 08 0CTOBER 2020 | TIME: 18:00 – 19:30 BST | VENUE: ONLINE
