Northern Ireland is a great place for innovation and entrepreneurship with a great network that is willing to help via a coffee or an introduction
However founders still need more connections so Raise hosted Magic Sauce from Norwich and Diversity x from London in Belfast

The idea was to bring founders together from across Northern Ireland with communities like Magic Sauce and Diversity x to allow them to connect

It was great to hostKevin Withane CEO of Diversity X (London) a community founder and angel investors focused on underestimated founders . Kevin is also an advocate of DE & I and an experienced corporate lawyer

And Kris Jones CEO of Magic Sauce (Norwich) which give founders education, network and investor matching for underrepresented founders. Kris is also a startup advisor and a human API (knows everyone)

Watch this space for the Belfast visit to London on Tuesday 8th October to celebrate Diversity x 3rd Birthday!
