Raising early pre seed investment can be quite a challenge for startup founders who don’t have a wide network or connections to investors and mentors.

That’s where the Sunset Raise Pitch Night from Raise Ventures comes in. This exciting pitching event will showcase potential high growth, early stage tech startups at University of Ulster Academy Restaurant on Wednesday 29th March, and you're welcome to join us.
