The application process is NOW OPEN for Propeller 2.0.  Already founders with disruptive ideas are showing interest as they prepare to come out of stealth mode and get accelerated with their company to new heights.  Companies from all over the world including the USA, Portugal, Israel, France are UK are showing interest in participating in this award winning accelerator, recently ranked 7th in Europe.

“The Propeller Venture Accelerator has been a great experience one that has truly accelerated our company by at least 2 years if not more in only 3 months. With easy access to a number of experienced mentors we were able to achieve results so much faster.”Tom  Byrne, CEO & Founder, HealthComms

The application process has 2 stages;

First is the online application process where founders have to answer a list of questions based on themselves, their team and their product/service.   To apply founders must email the following address stating that they would like to apply; within one working day they will receive an email with the link to the application questions.  Applicants have the ability to edit their answers at any time up until the closing date of 2nd November 2012 at 5pm (Dublin time). No changes or new applicants can be accepted after this date and time.  These will then be shortlisted to approx 15 companies.

The second part of the application process requires these shortlisted companies to complete a presentation about themselves and their great idea to a panel of some of the top business people in Ireland including Declan Ryan of Irelandia Investments (Ryanair, Tiger Airways). This will happen between the 10th and the 24th of November after which the board will decide on the companies who make it as the finalists for Propeller 2.0

The chosen companies will then enter the Propeller offices on the 2nd January 2012 in Citywest, Dublin.   Waiting are over 60 mentors with a formidable amount of experience to help these companies on a path to success.

We would encourage applicants to start filling in the questions promptly and to engage with the Academy from an early stage.
