Raise was originally born from the idea of connecting investment ready startups with active angel investors and funds - Northern Ireland's first and only open pitching event!

That's a wrap! Our first in-person pitch night in almost 3 years, complete. Wow...

What a pleasure it was to bring together the investment opportunities of Umazi, FutureMatch, Chirp, BrokerIQ, DiverseTalent.ai and AirPOS with local and international investors. Even sweeter that it was the first post-Covid Pitch Night that we could enjoy in person.

We're extending a big Thank You to everyone who joined us, especially our community of investors, and a huge 'hats off' to all our pitchers who brought incredible energy, passion and an inspiring sense of opportunity to the room. We'll do it all again in Spring 2023 with the next cohort of investment-ready tech startups from Northern Ireland and beyond!
