South East BIC were delighted to bring the ‘Angel’s Den’ back to Wexford Business Summit on October 3rd 2018.

With businesses of all sizes experiencing difficulty in obtaining finance to start and grow their businesses, South East BIC and Halo Business Angel Network (HBAN) partnered with Wexford Chamber to match local businesses to angels, who are actively seeking companies to invest in.

This year, to make it interesting, it was competition with a prize fund of €500, sponsored by South East BIC. The below four start-ups pitched their business idea for 5 minutes in front of a panel of angel investors and answered the challenging questions from the angels, in front of the assembled crowd at the event.

• Herdsy – Richard Hobson
• Paytient Payments – Ruairi Gough
• Newslyst – Niall McManus
• Rsense – Tony Redmond

The competition was intense with all four promotors presenting exceptionally well, making for a difficult decision for the judges. While they were deliberating, Aidan Shine CEO of South East BIC explained the supports that South East BIC provide, and some background on angel investing in the region.

The judges returned with their winner and Richard Hobson from Herdsy won the €500 cash prize.
