A Business start-up accelerator programme is offering a fresh group of companies the chance to help grow. Start Planet NI has previously chosen nine technology-based firms for a fast-track programme aimed at getting them off the ground.

Now it's offering 10 new ones - local and global - the chance to get involved.

Programme lead mentor Bill Liao said: "We know that supporting ambitious entrepreneurs to develop innovative start-ups is a critical part of Northern Ireland's broader economic strategy.

"To compete, we have put together a compelling proposition which combines strong private equity funding, innovative workspace, top quality mentoring and business support, along with global networks and reach."

Start Planet NI is accepting applications for the programme until May 27. Check out www.startplanetni.com for details.
