Rising Ecosystems #6: Belfast (Part II)
In part two of the sixth episode exploring the entrepreneurial landscape of UK cities, co-hosts Alex Irwin-Hunt and Yessi Bello Perez continue their remote journey to Belfast.
Featuring the same two guests as part one – Belfast City Council' digital innovation commissioner Jayne Brady, and Henry Joseph-Grant, a serial entrepreneur and start-up mentor – this digs deeper into some of the challenges and opportunities in Northern Ireland's start-up community.
Listeners can expect a candid conversation about the misconceptions and perils of raising venture capital funding, why marketing the success of Belfast's ecosystem is the next key step and the potential downsides of competition for talent between start-ups and foreign companies.
