The Irish regional BIC’s ( Business Innovation Centres) have been really fantastic in supporting the team at VERI to grow and strive over the past 4 years.
SEBIC supported the team in the win of the EI’s Female Competitive Start Fund that saw Veri’s first investment. Then, CorkBIC came on board the following year, inviting Veri founder Ann-Marie McSorley to the Entrepreneur Experience. Led by Cork Bic and Pete Smith from Broadlake , this is an amazing accelerator where 24 Start up’s get 24 hours one to one with seasoned entrepreneurs who have seen it all and share their war stories. The objective being to help these start up’s scale and grow.
