We are through to the Global Investor Challenge Final!
I cannot believe I am typing this.
Today we were one of 10 regional companies who got chosen to pitch for one of two places to get into the final 14 to pitch over the weekend to be titled Global Investor Challenge winner. After a long day and a hell of a lot of pitching- we are through to the top 14!
The day was spent first pitching against 10 Munster based start-ups and three companies were brought forward and we were given the opportunity to pitch in front of 40 of Cork's most seasoned entrepreneurs to get feedback on our pitch for the next day.
Next, we were given two entrepreneurs to mentor us and refine our pitch. I couldn't believe my luck when I was assigned Jim Barry ( Barry's of Mallow) and Arun Kapil (Green Saffron). Anyone who is in the food industry in Ireland, or in business full stop will know how amazing two minutes with these guys are, and I got 30!
The night ended with a well-refined pitch, a very sleep yet excited Breffney for what the weekend will bring.
