Key speakers at the prestigious event hosted at Titanic Belfast, included David Perry, who recently sold his company to Sony for $380m and Danny Moore, who sold Wombat Financial Software to the New York Stock Exchange for $200m.

Generation Innovation delivered by NISP CONNECT in partnership with representatives from the local business community provides an exclusive support programme and network for young people who have the ambition and passion to forge their own high achieving career.

The annual event provided students nominated by teachers, parents and businesspeople with the opportunity to be inspired by leading global innovators, to meet local technology company founders and like-minded young people, and to identify work experience positions and future career paths.
